Portfolio Program – Art Direction



As an art director, strategy focuses your creative. Knowing the “who” helps you with the “what,” making smarter campaigns that hit your target.


“Yes, then what?” This is your mantra when brainstorming with your copywriter and how the ideas that are flowing turn into fully formed campaigns.


You have the idea, now make it happen. You’ve learned tools like Photoshop, Illustrator and photography to make a polished presentation.


You will stand in front of your teacher and classmates to explain your concept and show your ideas. This practice will prepare you for your career.


Portfolio Programs last two years, during this time you will be able to develop your creative power. Our goal is for our students to finish the program carrying the best portfolio they can develop so they can go to an agency and have the opportunity of being hired.

Art Directors are idea generators. If you think through images, you are a typography lover and getting the last Adobe version is a priority, this is the right program for you. You’ll master Photoshop and Illustrator while you think ideas for real, fictional and festival briefs.

How will you do it? In the agency way, this is the real-life way. You’ll be given a brief, you’ll make a team with another creative, and brainstorm will be your main task until concepts arise. Finding the best insights will be the path right to powerful concepts. Production is the last step. Your executions will have to communicate everything your idea stands for.

The instructor becomes your creative director. He or she will guide your work and pull your idea until the best of it comes out.
