Graphic Design

We often believe that graphic designers are problem solvers. They are much more like the Einstein of colours and images; types and illustrations. They analyse visual problems, they synthesise facts and figures, add a dash of creativity and flair to create a solutions that would wow their audience. Graphic designers are creative bunch who explores and experiments and here in Binus Northumbria School of Design, we provide these graphic designers to-be with the chance and facilities for them to ‘play around’ and unleash their inner creativity.



Located in the lively FX Lifestyle Center in Sudirman area, the students are exposed to a vibrant environment for richer experience and to look for inspiration. Inside our school facility, we provide our students with two Multifunction classrooms equipped with the latest technologies to ensure their maximum studying experience, also two Macintosh studios and a Pre-press Lab. And for the students who has achieved their final semester, they are eligible to use our very own Final Project Room for a more focused environment.



We at Binus Northumbria School of Design emphasises the importance of understanding both the local culture of Indonesia as well as the culture of others. One way to experience the culture is to living it. Therefore in Graphic Design, we usually hold these cultural trips for our students. In early 2015, we held a field trip to Lasem, Rembang, in order to better understand the Batik Artisan community and to further learn from them. It was such an enriching experience for our students.
