An essential part of graphic design education is the gaining of practical on-the-job experience with various operators in the world of business.
Students implement the graphic design commissions received by the department
from companies, organisations or communities either in teams or independently.
Each project has a director named by the department, which co-ordinates all projects.

The graphic design education programme accepts visual design commissions from
all sub-areas of communications and design. The most typical projects relate
to corporate and product graphics, advertising, Internet websites, the design
of electronic publications, as well as publication (magazines' appearance and
layout), poster and packaging design. Our co-operating partners include A. Ahlström
Oy, Oy Hartwall Ab, Sanoma Osakeyhtiö, Oy Sinebrychoff Ab, Stora Enso Oyj
and the Finnish Tourist Board.
