About the School of Design


When you study with New Zealand’s largest specialist design school, you're working with top professionals from the worlds of graphic design, digital design, fashion and makeup artistry. For the past 20 years we’ve been helping creative people unlock their talents with real-world, hands-on learning, small classes and one-on-one support. We have a long history steeped in some iconic New Zealand schools, including Yoobee School of Design, NatColl and Christchurch’s Design & Arts.

Disconnect from the desk.

At Yoobee you won’t just be stuck behind a desk 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. You can jump right in with a six-month or one-year intensive programme, or take the time to nurture your talent with a three-year professional degree. Either way, you’ll be working with the latest hardware and software, and learning skills that will be in demand today and in the future.

“I’ve ended up working with clients from New Zealand, Mauritius, Sweden, Australia, America and more. One of my current projects is the branding of a new virtual reality hub in Brisbane, which is being funded by the Queensland Government. My biggest win, I would say!”
