This website has been made to showcase the graduate projects of the 2017 Masters in Visual Communication Design program at Arizona State University. In the final year of this program, graduate students are required to complete a capstone course that is a hybrid of a thesis and applied project. This capstone project is generally researched, designed and completed in one semester (though students do have the option to further a project completed in the prior semester). As this is a hybrid course with design research, students are required to have committee members and to defend their work during an exhibit designed for the public.
