Courses

Design and creative thinking skills matter now more than ever, regardless of your job title. We offer a range of courses to help you learn what you need.

The T-Shaped Curriculum

We believe in the “T-shaped creative” — someone who has a broad set of skills across the design spectrum, who’s also able to specialize in a specific area. It’s a powerful concept, and employers we’ve spoken to increasingly want to hire T-shaped experts.
