The Frankfurt Academy for Communication and Design – FAKD – resulted from the Kunstschule (art school) Westend. For more than 40 years it has offered practice-oriented instruction in the fields of graphic design and communication design. State recognition by the State of Hessen occurred 30 years ago. The Academy’s successful teaching work is thanks to the concept that all current 25 lecturers are themselves active in practice professionally. Many former FAKD graduates are today agency owners, CEOs, creative directors, art directors or run their own studios as freelancers.
