Why choose this course at London College of Communication

• Industry links – Collaborative opportunities with a range of international practices are built into the course, with past creative partners including Channel 4, NASA, United Nations, Wolff Olins, Southwark Council, Euromonitor and London College of Fashion. You’ll work with designers and strategists from industry. Past agencies include Pentagram, Superunion and Grey. • Flexibility/personalisation – Masters-level study is, by its nature, a highly-personal mode of delivery and study. Your own working practice as design-researcher is encouraged, and we’ll support your requirements as a practitioner and worker throughout the course. • International opportunities - MA Graphic Branding and Identity supports students in their ambitions to work in international contexts. Whilst we don’t offer an integrated internationalised program, many of our students have worked and interned in a wide range of countries during the summer period, as well as within collaborative projects. These include Korea, the USA, China and Japan, as well as within the EU. • Where graduates have gone on to work – Our graduates have had a high degree of success in further employment and study. Recent graduates have worked at Accenture, Publicis LifeBands, McCann Worldgroup, Sagmeister & Walsh, BrandCap, Superunion, Atelier and the BBC. A number of our students have progressed to PhD study, developing their research practice into deeper, more sustained academic pathways. We also encourage students to teach in higher-education, and many of our students now successfully integrate teaching into their practice. • Facilities – One of LCC’s greatest assets is its outstanding range of old and new technologies, including printing and binding facilities and digital and post-digital skillsets, led by world-class technicians and teachers. MA Graphic Branding and Identity works effortlessly within these areas to build sustained and supportive relationships with our technical facilities; this ensures you have opportunities to immerse yourself in craft knowledge, develop new technological skills, and widen your capacity as a graphic branding specialist.
