Designed To Be Different
The graphic design school was the first solely online graphic design school in the world. In 2008, we started our adventure to share our love for design and educational philosophy via the web.
Learn From Designers
We got a lot more than we bargained for. An intelligent student body, a teaching team of amazing designers, support from our design peers, and an energy that has created the best community. A community that we love.
So why choose us?
We teach a mixture of what we call “old school” meets “new school” techniques that get to the core of what it means to be a real designer: an understanding of the culture of design combined with the techniques of a solid design process, from design brief to idea generation, sketching, layout, comp and finishing in the Adobe suite.
We see the world differently. We are designers.
Safety & Equality
We are committed to providing a safe, equitable environment that promotes confidence and productivity.
