About the School of Design

 

When you study with New Zealand’s largest specialist design school, you're working with top professionals from the world of graphic design, digital design, fashion and makeup artistry industries. 

You won’t be stuck behind a desk just learning about other people’s ideas.

Our programmes get you involved right from the start so you can build your skills and put them to work on real projects, working with the latest hardware and software, and learning skills that will be in demand today - and in the future. 

For the past 20 years we’ve been helping creative people unlock their talents with real-world, hands-on learning. We provide small classes giving students more one-on-one support with our expert tutors. We have a long history steeped in some iconic New Zealand schools, including Yoobee School of Design, NatColl and Christchurch’s Design & Arts.
