Experiential learning has always been the core of graphic design education as the graphic design field is practical in nature. Besides honing the students’ intellectual, creative and observational qualities, the sensitivity to culture of their own and of others is also of importance in graphic design education. A 6-day study trip to Osaka, Japan for 23 students played a critical role in supporting their learning, to meet the module learning objectives of learning about and understanding another culture and to gain real-world experience in the context of graphic design. Relevant Culturally Responsive Teaching principles were adapted to facilitate the students’ learning and research process. The students’ research, idea development, final design and written reflection served as outcomes of the module. In conclusion, although graphic design education stresses on skilful and creative output of design principles, the knowledge and sensitivity on the topic of culture is of equal importance.
