The Graphic Design Post Baccalaureate program at MICA provides students from complementary fields with a one year fundamental-to-advanced exploration of visual communication and typography. Students learn to thoughtfully decode and assemble all levels of systems of design.

To symbolize this process, the website (which serves as a recruitment tool for prospective students as well as an archive of the work of alumni) makes concrete the underlying grid that unifies each page through a system of geometric patterns.
