Class tuition is $3,000. We offer only the top quality of instruction and cover a vast amount of design topics in a short timeframe. The experience you will receive and the potential opportunities upon completion of the course will undoubtedly trump the initial costs.
You will be taught in-person in Chicago, IL. We've partnered with Manifest Digital
to host classes. They are located on the north side of the Loop:
35 E. Wacker, Ste. 1000
Chicago, IL 60601
The program runs from June 4, 2013 - August 1, 2013 (nine weeks). There will be mandatory classroom sessions held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.
You must commit six hours of classroom time per week, as well as twenty hours of your own time. We will give you the groundwork and concepts on design, but you must be able to dedicate time to outside readings and work.
We offer one exclusive course that entails all the topics of digital design.
Not everyone is meant to be a programmer, but if you want to be involved with startups, you should have some sort of technical skill. There's a shortage of design talent out there. Read what everyone else is saying about the design revolution:
The Next Web
Design can be overwhelming, especially if you don't know where to begin. If you want a structured program that will teach you everything there is needed to become a master designer from scratch, hold you accountable, and be taught to you by talented designers with industry experience, then The Designation is for you.
You must apply
to be a part of the Summer 2013 cohort.
We only want to work with people who are passionate and dedicated enough to become designers. You don't have to have any prior knowledge of coding or design at all, but what we're looking for are people who want to be great designers. You should understand that great design takes a lot of time and effort, and that it doesn't happen overnight. The applicants who do get accepted are in for an intensive nine weeks of their lives.
You'll need a working laptop (Mac or Windows).
You will need to purchase a one-year account with Adobe Creative Cloud, but we will reimburse you the full amount.
Full refunds will be given up to June 5, 2013 (two days from the program start date).
By the end of nine weeks, you will have obtained a solid education in digital design and have a stellar portfolio to showcase your project(s) from the course.
You will know that you are the right fit if you are one of the following:
- Someone who is new to the world of technology (you don't know HTML from CSS)
- Someone who has very basic skills in design
- A programmer who wants to refine their design skills, obtain UX training, and learn the Adobe suite
