You can study graphic design/ visual communication in the class of Prof. Holger Felten and Prof. Friederike Girst.
The graphic design/ visual communication course is a diploma course with a regular study period of 8 semesters. All AdBK students, regardless of area of study, attend the foundation course in the first 2 semesters focusing on artistic production and reflection with parallel learning of the basic techniques of the different artistic disciplines – from casting plaster to film cutting – in the workshop and media courses. However, students are invited to and should take part in the graphic design/visual communication class and weekly class discussions from the beginning.
Study is multifaceted with events like workshops with various guest lecturers, seminars, study trips to design firms or public academy lectures with eminent artists and designers and individual areas of specialisation may be selected. Regular opportunities are also given to conduct real projects for customers in business and cultural spheres or to take part in competitions. The study structure and discourse are open, so students can develop their own study focus and define their professional identity. Cooperation between classes and students is desired and fostered. Student guidance is offered by Professors Holger Felten and Friederike Girst and lecturer Peter Wendl.
The diploma award for a non-modular course of study, in which academic freedom is cultivated, reflects the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts’ fundamental self-conception as a creative space for nurturing theoretical and practical skills.
