Creative Process in Graphic Design course introduces and develops the creative thinking and the design project methodology that are characteristic of a designer, and introduces the basic principles of design, as well as perceptive and analytical training in the use of graphic language as a means of conceiving and transmitting ideas. It proposes a crossover knowledge between visual art, creativity, communication, narrative, and graphic design.

The 6 modules of the Creative Process are:

– Context

– Trends

– Inspiration and Ideation

– Creation

– Project + Prototype

– Communication

Discordia, by the student Daniela Rosselli


– Understand what constitutes the creative process in graphic design and visual communication.

– Discover how the great designers create and develop their creative proposals.

– Become acquainted with the steps to follow to gain inspiration, generate ideas, create and communicate them.

– Apply a method that enables creative talent to be fostered and unleashed.


As a Project-Based Learning (PBL) course, students are provided with the necessary e-learning tools to drive collaborative working techniques in the realisation of projects.

The subjects are structured around three axes, to facilitate learning and the practical application of the knowledge acquired:


How to tackle each creative stage and which strategies to employ, following the advice of experts and discovering their experiences when it comes to differentiating proposals and ideas.


What are the most effective tools to develop each stage of the creative process, and the best instruments to foster creativity and teamwork.


Guided by the teacher, in each stage progress is made towards the development of a creative project that solidifies the skills acquired in dominating a method and utilising tools.
