Design is a process and mode of inquiry that underpins research and pedagogy across the Institute. MIT has a rich history of advancing design theory, research, teaching, and practice, with impact at MIT and around the world. It offers a wide range of courses such as graphic design, industrial design, digital design, visual communication... and has a Design minor / major within the Department of Architecture.


4.110 DESIGN ACROSS SCALES Instructors: Nicholas de Monchaux & Roi Salgueiro Barrio TAs: Alicia Jael Delgado, Logan King, Johann Schweig Credits: 2-2-8 (UG) Class Sessions: Mondays, 10am–12pm / N52-337 Lab Sessions: Wednesdays, 7–9pm / N52-33 Presented by: MIT Architecture and MIT MAD Overview: Through a combination of guest-lectures by renowned designers and lab sessions, Design Across Scales exposes salient, contemporary design challenges and gives students design tools to approach them. Today, design doesn’t only concern the creation of isolated objects, but the consideration of the different systems and externalities associated with them. To do so, we designers need to think, more than ever, across disciplines and scales. We need to situate our design intentions within broader social and environmental concerns. We need to consider how design addresses different publics and cultures, different economies and ecologies. The course's full commitment to cross-disciplinary practice aspires to build a shared design culture across MIT — from engineering to architecture to planning; from science to computing to the arts — capable of responding to design’s evolving responsibilities.

How to choose the right graphic design course for you

Choosing the right graphic design course comes down to your preferred study format, what you’re hoping to achieve and how much time and money you can invest .

First, narrow it down by deciding whether you want to learn online or in-person . Most of the graphic design courses on our list are available online, as many adult learners value the flexibility. You should also think about whether you prefer to learn completely independently, at your own pace, or if you’d benefit from interactive lessons at fixed times.

The next factor to consider is your learning goals . If you want to become an employable graphic designer, prioritise courses which offer career support—and, ideally, a job placement guarantee. You’ll also want a course which includes project work, along with mentorship and feedback to guide you through the process of building your portfolio, as this will prove crucial when applying for jobs.

Last but not least, how much time and money can you invest? Ultimately, you need a graphic design course which fits comfortably around your schedule and sits within your budget.

During this workshop, all students were asked to write an extension article for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which together formed an addendum for this historical text. It has formed a new part of the temple that hold and protect our humanity. To provide contextual background to the work, students had been reading and discussing an article each day, followed by a daily topic. By the end of the week, an extension of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was celebrated in the form of 20 flags and a collaborative video of 20×20 seconds.

Marjolaine Rey – Ici prochainement votre appartement

Marjolaine Rey – Ici prochainement votre appartement

with Aurèle Sack, Diego Bontognali

Ici Prochainement Votre Appartement is the transition from private property to public space. On the eve of moving out of the family home, but especially in view of its imminent demolition, I have placed La Maison (The House) in a brand-new space, i.e. a book. This book, more than a personal monologue, is an invitation to enter through text and image. From the gate to the garden to the door, all the way to the attic, where the library lies. Iconography drawn from this library has an impact on the layout of the entire volume. The space of the book is my playground. The quarto format conceals half of the content between the pages. It is up to the readers to decide whether or not they want to enter each room of La Maison when they visit. Welcome to my home, soon to be yours…

Alice Villars – Mirù

Alice Villars – Mirù

by Alice Villars

Mirù is an exploration of the transmission and itinerancy of my mother’s life through interdependent objects, dresses and a book. Clothes say a lot about someone. More than appearance, they are a fertile ground for graphic expression and self-expression. I created five dresses using archive material. The composition of the dresses incorporates ornamental forms and graphic elements, pictures. Each dress becomes an address from my mother’s life, representing a particular atmosphere that gives clues to her story. The editing, meanwhile, creates a loop between the dresses and the book, a place where everything comes together. Mirù plunges into the history and emotions of a life, conveyed through clothes and words.

Pablo Felley – 606

Pablo Felley – 606

with Gilles Gavillet, Guy Meldem

606 is a travelling and modular art space, built from shipping containers. Every three months, the space changes location and layout. 606 invites local artists to create new universes at the intersection of technology and reality. 606 comes to life at night and showcases its identity through constantly evolving 360-degree projections, which cover and transform the structure of the containers. 606 also exists throughout the city through animated posters that offer a new interpretation of the projected visuals. The communication of 606 is simultaneously developed in 3D, 2D and in rhythm.

Alice Moor – Baraonda

Alice Moor – Baraonda

with Aurèle Sack, Guy Meldem

Baraonda is a playful system designed to help run creative activities. The workshop is based on a wheel of fortune made up of several circles that determine the characteristics and rules that will be put in place. Nine stages have been devised, starting with the widest circle and working down to the narrowest. A working theme is determined, followed by a technique, different materials, colours, and so on. In addition to the series of circles, I developed various materials to support the workshops: wooden stencils, a collection of images and self-adhesive letters. The development of the project and the results of the activities carried out in primary school classes in Lausanne have been brought together in a printed edition. The whole package comes in a cloth-covered cardboard box.

Ambre Louineau – Helix

Ambre Louineau – Helix

with Jonathan Hares, Gilles Gavillet

Helix is a science popularisation project inspired by Isabella Maria Pasqualini’s thesis, entitled “Embodied Space in Architecture, Cognitive Neuroscience and Virtual Reality”, carried out at EPFL Architecture. The book focuses on the links of the human body with architecture and neuroscience, offering an interpretation and an appropriation of the thesis. To do this, the book explores the vector representation of the four chapters, alternating with photographic fragments illustrating the integration of the human body into the architecture of the book.

Leoni Limbach – Wild Tales

Leoni Limbach – Wild Tales

with Nicole Udry, Aurèle Sack

A flower is not just a flower, it is all living beings that depend on it to bloom. In the context of the biodiversity crisis, this book is a response to Gilles Clément's manifesto The Third Landscape. The landscaper calls for the revaluation of the spaces along our roads of cities. Between over-urbanisation and excessive agricultural monoculture, these forgotten marginal spaces are recolonised by pioneering, wild flora, regenerating ecosystems that are rich in biodiversity. Unlike the herbarium, which proceeds by fragmentary analysis, this project analyses relationships between living beings. Wild Tales is a book of atmospheric illustrations that invites us to draw from the varied colours and shapes of this space as well as the wild stories that make it up.

Ianka Jean-Marie – HYPER-OBJETS

Ianka Jean-Marie – HYPER-OBJETS

with Gilles Gavillet, Nicole Udry

Part art book, part science textbook, this meta-encyclopaedia evokes the risks of global warming. Going beyond the usual paradigms of the Anthropocene era, these phenomena are known as HYPER-OBJECTS. Through the reading of a simplified language, this system of mental maps conceptualises these complex phenomena. In the context of the ecological crisis, the materialisation of this ecological thinking allows us to measure our impact, while reinterpreting the phenomenon of the end of the world in a more tangible way. Through this visual archaeology, we search for traces of our contemporary civilisation, questioning our relationship with the future. In truth, doesn’t this object bear witness to the destructive movement of the end of the world?

Hugo Jauffret – Red Sea Last Hope

Hugo Jauffret – Red Sea Last Hope

with Nicole Udry, Jonathan Hares

Recent scientific studies reveal that Red Sea corals are more resilient than average to rising water temperatures. This unique coral refuge on earth gives great hope to scientists and allows them to analyse factors of coral resistance before they to eventually disappear. Red Sea Last Hope combines scientific reports, expedition accounts and geopolitical archives, aiming to raise awareness about the gradual disappearance of corals while highlighting the influence of the geopolitics of the Red Sea, which is delaying research.

Michelle Zadio Villarroel – Nativo+Latino

Michelle Zadio Villarroel – Nativo+Latino

with Gilles Gavillet, Jonathan Hares

Nativo+Latino reinvents the heritage and syncretism of the South American continent. Long shaped by the evangelisation of the indigenous people, the consequences of this mix of identities bears witness to the cultural and religious alienation of Latinos. Gradually, awareness of the indigenous condition has pushed their descendants to honour and revive their cult. This project is a place where Latin communities, who aim to reclaim this heritage that was until now regarded as pagan beliefs, to come together, confront one another and express themselves. Nativo takes the shape of ancestral memories and a collective imagination that reflects a reinterpretation of the practice of Catholicism in Latin America in order to restore power in a hybrid vision of identity.

Louis Roh – Les chemins perdus

Louis Roh – Les chemins perdus

with Guy Meldem, Diego Bontognali

Millennia ago, humankind discovered electricity and never stopped exploiting and reinventing it, unconcerned, considering this resource to be infinite. This book, Les Chemins Perdus, opens up new horizons, between dream and fiction, through realistic and poetic notions. What if all the lights went out? It stimulates the imagination and offers readers light, childlike speculation. Interest in illustration, storytelling and printing techniques brings this graphic tale to life. This journey of colours and images appeals to a multi-generational audience, tapping into the potential of children’s books in these tense and confusing times.

Ilaria Citti – KRUMP

Ilaria Citti – KRUMP

with Gilles Gavillet, Diego Bontognali

As a Krump dancer, I have noticed a lack of editorial content dedicated to this dance. Originating in the underprivileged areas of South Central in Los Angeles in the 1990s, Krump is a way for dancers to express their anger, aggression, frustration and pain in a positive way. This book sheds light on the spirit of this dance through its codes: its community spirit, its vocabulary, its music and its competitions. By seeking to meet those involved in the dance scene in Switzerland, I hope to offer an authentic perspective on this movement.

Agathe Bourrée – Informal Pictures

Agathe Bourrée – Informal Pictures

Each year, the seven most influent countries in the world gather to discuss international matters for a weekend hosted by one of the members. Informal Pictures is an inquiry that aims to recreate the atmosphere of these meetings, which lead to major decisions regarding international politics. It is an attempt to understand the influence of the press on the collective imaginary, with regard to those major political events. The study uses graphic design tools and mainstream journalistic sources to recreate an image that never existed, a missing image of political dinners during the annual G7. Those informal images are recreated based on what the newspapers say and used as input in an artificial intelligence to shape the intention of the picture.

This section lists the detailed modules and courses for each semester of the programme.
