What kind of background do I need to have?

Our students are like snowflakes, no two are alike. Are you a lawyer who is bursting with creativity and needs to get out of that large law firm? Did you just graduate with a 4-year degree and realize that you really need a portfolio to get your dream job? Have you always been creative and wanted a career rather than be a starving artist? Then this school is for you!

What quarter should I start?

The quarters are identical so start at the time of year that is most convenient for you. In most cities the portfolio programs in art direction, copywriting and design start four times a year: January, April, July or October.

Some programs start less frequently. Pockets only starts twice a year. Check our programs
individually.
