In the execution of a commission, the graphic designer forms a link between a client and a section of the public.
The Graphic Design Option trains students to develop formal, significant, personal universes, to control the creation of images, graphic signs and typography – and also their connotations. These skills are embodied in projects that should result in relevant, fully worked-out artistic content.
The Option is based on traditional aesthetic principles: drawing, formal expression and illustration. It simultaneously provides the techniques that are indispensable to the use of the forms and types of content associated with digital techniques: photography, communicational videos, composite images and web pages.
The graphic designer is concerned with visual communication, covering cultural and institutional domains, but also the worlds of business and industry.
The study programme in the Graphic Design Option is based on projects in which the students demonstrate, experiment with and develop personal qualities of imagination and elaboration.

There are frequent placements, including a mandatory four-month study period, which help the student to build up a professional identity.
The three years of study, the first of which is common to all the different Options, culminate in the award of the DNAT Diplôme National d'Arts et Techniques.
Those students who wish to pursue their studies can join the Design(s) Option in the Project phase, in Year 4, with the approval of the admissions panel.
