AAAD’s Department of Graphic Design offers its students an open learning system. Thanks to its high quality tutorial staff and appropriate technical facilities, the individual studios constitute unique laboratories and meeting places where future graphic designers, typographers, illustrators, photographers, film and TV graphic designers and new media artists can develop their creative skills.
An indispensable component of study in the department consists of work in the printmaking workshops (lithography, typography, screenprinting, offset and photogravure) and the bookbinding workshop. Auxiliary and theoretical disciplines and the contributions of a wide range of external specialists also play an important part in the department.

History of the Department

The Academy of Art, Architecture and Design was established in Prague in 1885 (as the Imperial School of Applied Arts), but the specialized school of applied graphic arts was not established until 1919. It was headed by Professor František Kysela and staffed at the time by two other eminent figures of applied graphic arts, illustration and typography - Prof. Vratislav Hugo Brunner and Prof. Jaroslav Benda.
