  1. “A picture is worth a thousand words”, a well-known adage that stands true through time. Even before we could speak, we used graphics to communicate. Today, we are surrounded by designs of all kinds- from the home screen on our mobile phones to the big billboards out on the streets, graphics are a timeless medium to communicate. As a school boy, I had always loved to sketch cartoon characters. A Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering gave me exposure to machines of different shapes and sizes. I was intrigued by how design made even the most complex machines easy to use. These experiences
  2. Hey guys, I am on the waitlist of SVA MFA Design. Do you guys know the chances of getting in? Although I got admitted into Pratt but I really like the program at SVA and still want to wait till April 15th. Fingers crossed!
  3. Does anyone know of any other programs similar to CU Boulder's MA in Strategic Communication Design?: http://www.colorado.edu/cmci/academics/advertising-pr-and-media-design/graduate-degrees#ma Something that discusses design as a way of problem solving or something that may include graphic design specifically with an environmental focus.
  4. Hey everyone! I don't know why but I feel like the graphic design department of every college functions seperately, in regard to their applications and admissions roll-out, so thought of having a different topic about the same. Thoughts?
  5. Hi all! I'm starting to research MFA's for Graphic Design, and I'm super lost. Most advice articles treat MFA fields the same, which is super unhelpful (graphic design and ceramics? totally the same! biochemistry and physics? sure, same thing!). My portfolio isn't incredible, I didn't go to undergrad for gd or any sort of art (BBA in Marketing), and I'm working currently as a Marketing Assistant and Graphic Designer for a theater company. When looking at school rankings, i feel like there's a huge gap - either the top of the top (RISD, SCAD, Ivys) or your community college. It's really hard t
  6. Hi everyone! I was a little active on this forum in early 2017 during my first go-around at applications. Out of four schools I was accepted into one, but even with their offer of partial funding I still found it too pricey to accept, especially since it was only my safety school. So I decided to take a lengthy break from pursuing grad school, work on my portfolio and CV, and take things much slower and surer this second time around. Hence this new thread asking for everyone's advice Professionally I am mainly an illustrator but I consider this inseparable from my explorations in gr
  7. Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?

    Aalto Arts MA

    Hello! Anyone knows what kind of interviews does Aalto Arts take? I have an interview for the Visual communication track coming up.
  9. Hey Guys, I remember being in undergrad and sometimes feeling so distant from my peers because I was an international student. Well, here I am again on this voyage about to feel even weirder, this time as a grad student. I thought that we should have a space where we could be able to share experiences, answer questions, give advice, or just a space where you say what makes you feel ok about yourself. Good luck everyone! Disclaimer: I worked with International Services during my undergrad but this does not make me an immigration official. Although I can give my opinion on certain si
  10. Hey guys, Im applying to MFA in Design and wanted honest opinions. Im not a very good writer, never have been. Would love some quick suggestions, feedback. ___________________________________________________________________________________ “We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.” As a visual thinker and communicator, these words of Swami Vivekananda have guided me for the past ten years.

  11. Hello! I'm really cutting it to the wire here with this question ... and with my application to Yale. I'm applying for the MFA (graphic design) program and have a question about the portfolio component. It asks for 20 images to be submitted. I'm planning to include 10 projects as part of my portfolio (ie: 3 photographs of a book project, 1 of a typeface I designed ... etc). Is this what they're expecting? Can anyone who has been through this process advise me on the portfolio submission? Thanks in advance - any advice is greatly appreciated!
  12. Hi, I'm currently in the third and final year of my Bachelor's Degree in something totally unrelated to Graphic Design, in India. I don't want to do anything related to my Bachelors in the future and want to do something related to Graphic Design/Illustration after I graduate. I've always been into art and design since a child and I was seriously considering Graphic Design in school. I even got accepted at an Art School with a Foundation year but I chose to stay in India as I got into one of the best colleges in Liberal Arts here. Even now, I find myself doodling in class all the time, ha
  13. Hi there, I've had some trouble finding full or largely funded MFA programs in graphic design (or related field- e.g. digital arts, digital media, etc). I'd be interested programs abroad too, ideally in an English speaking country, but curious to hear any leads either way. So far I've seen Yale seems to suggest they'll help you out as much as possible so you don't have to take out loans. I've seen MICA provides 20%-60% funding. UCLA's Design Media Arts MFA is fully funded, but it's a little closer to fully fledged fine arts program than a design one. Would love to
  14. I'm wondering if anyone is making a similar decision / has gone through this process already? I have a liberal arts undergrad degree, so I applied mainly to 3-year MFAs/Post-Bacc programs for graphic design. Even though I have done a lot in art and have taken continuing ed classes in graphic design, programs that would give me more practice in design fundamentals appealed to me. I was accepted for the Post-Baccs at MICA and SAIC (which would most likely lead to the MFA there), the 3-year MFA at CCA, and 2-year MFA at Pratt. First of all, I was wondering what people's impressions of M
  15. Long time lurker, first time poster. The reason I am posting is because I keep trying to find answers but I have so many problems and hope perhaps someone else had a similar situation or knows of something I have not tried. I have a BFA with a concentration in Illustration and a minor in Graphic Design. When I was in undergrad every time I went to my adviser (who also happened to be the dean of the art department) about something I did not feel I was learning their stock answer was almost always "go to grad school." Me: "I need help with a website to showcase my portfolio and j

    hi,did anyone receive the MFA graphic design interview in risd in 2016?I come from china,in our country,our applicants haven’t receive any messages from risd and I want to know whether this school already send their interview invitation or not?
  17. Hi everyone, I'm new here and I'm kind of obssessively reading all these posts trying to soak up as much info as possible. A little about myself, I'm a career-changer. I originally have a BA in English, and earned an elementary teaching credential which is really not working for me at the moment with budget cuts. I have always loved art and finally decided to invest myself in it, after putting in on hold. I'm at community college right now and was thinking of transferring to a school with a good graphic design program. My teacher is encouraging me to apply to Cal Arts, they have a 3 year
