Upcoming Design Classes

In our design classes you have access to professional software and mentors as well as a new circle of friends who speak the same language you do. Use professional software such as Adobe Creative Suite and Unity 3D. For game design, we write code using Javascript and C#. From foundational design basics to a paid design apprenticeship to yearlong immersive experiences, we’ve got a class for every aspiring designer!
