Designing University Diplomas

This paper presents the designed elements of a diploma.Etymologically, diploma has the meaning of a paper that is folded in two, but the current value and meaning is far beyond this basic physical description. Diplomas are valuable papers that represent significant aspects in two different layers: the first one being the demonstration of personal accomplishment and the second being the representation of the institution. The design of diplomas therefore should reflect and uplift the identity of the university and at the same time carry the latest innovations and technologies to prevent from forgery. Combining the elements of graphic design on a diploma with security systems is the main subject of research of this paper.
