Students of the «Book Design» direction are actively practicing working on books, magazines, booklets and other types of printed materials.


The book industry is undergoing great changes: high technology has made the design of the book a high art and added new meanings to the literature.

Now books are valuable not only as a repository of text, but also as an independent aesthetic product. This idea is the basis of teaching book design at the HSE School of Design. Students master all stages of book design and grow into specialists who are able to manage the publishing process.

Head of the department, graphic designer, specialist on multi-page publications, co-organizer of the book design festival «Heat Book».


If you are interested in book design, then the specialization «Multipage Edition» is open for you as part of the bachelor's profile «Communication Design».

Multipage publication

Students design print publications of various formats — books, magazines, calendars, zines, booklets, brochures, developing not only a structural, but also a substantial concept of the publication.

Graduate (MA)
