Visual Communication Design

Visual Communication Design at Aalto blends design skills with the approaches of other disciplines to ask pressing questions and pose essential problems. Critical design responses are situated within cultural, conceptual, and political contexts.

We view Visual Communication as the trans-media discipline of design. Our unit encourages the expression of varying viewpoints and a variety of communication techniques. Award-winning alumni, recent graduates, and our current student body are the cultural catalysts of the future. Their work can be found at:
