    I attended the full-time Shillington course in NYC and it honestly changed my life. I went in with a curiosity for design and the hope that I could find a way to make a career out of it and came out with the exact knowledge and tools I needed to make the change. The teachers are absolutely amazing, honestly, just the entire experience was incredible. I got a design job in under a month from graduating and projects I’ve made at Shillington have won/been nominated for a few awards. If you’re thinking of doing it, just make the jump. You absolutely will not regret it!

    Moving to New York and going to Shillington was one of the coolest / best decisions I have made. The course as well as the connections you make will last a lifetime.

    Before going to Shillington I had minimal experience working as a designer, and had a dream to become one. In less than a yer from graduating I now work as a design studio I only ever admired.

    The curriculum is so hands on, the teachers are exceptional and every member of the staff cares for you, and connects with you, every step of the way.

    I left Shillington with a broad knowledge of design fundamentals, history, principles and technical skills. The truth is, you can’t learn everything about design in 3 months, but after Shillington, I feel confident in my design skills, my ability to generate creative ideas and most importantly, I know how to ask the right questions and learn what I don’t know yet.

    Plain and simple, Shillington changed my life in the best way possible.

    I always loved art and creative “stuff”, but never thought I could make my passion into a career. After graduating college with a BS in Advertising from Syracuse University, I got a job in NYC at an ad agency as an account exec. While it was an incredible place to work, I felt that something was missing. I realized that the best part of my days were when I got to sit with my creative team or go to brainstorms. It became clear that I needed to go with my gut and try something new.

    I looked into every single program in New York (and some outside of the city) and found generally only two options, neither of which would work for me. The first was a 2-3 year graduate program at a university like NYU, Parsons, FIT, etc which were way too costly and too big of a time commitment. The second option was one-off classes for continuing education, which seemed more for people who felt like dabbling in an interest of theirs on the side. Not intense enough for me.

    Then, I found Shillington and I thought…this honestly must not be real. I hadn’t seen anything like it. It was literally everything I wanted to learn… in only three months.

    Turns out it is very real and was hands down the best decision I have ever made in my life. I will not sit here and say it was a walk in the park. It was definitely hard work, but the more you push yourself, the more likely you are to graduate with a portfolio that looks like you went to school for four years. The teachers, all practicing graphic designers, are some of the most incredible people I have ever met. They are talented designers and more importantly, they are passionate about teaching in a way that will help you develop your own style. I can easily say I learned more from my Shillington teachers in 3 months than I ever did from any of my professors in college.

    The course is set up perfectly so that even if you have never touched a Mac in your life, you can succeed. After having no experience with Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator, I am now sitting in front of a massive Mac desktop as a Graphic Designer for an awesome ad agency in NYC working on cool brands like Nike, BMW, LG, Hennessy, and more. Somebody smack me!!!!

    If it isn’t clear already, Shillington is unbelievable and I do not think there is anything out there like it. DO IT!

    My overall experience was great. I was able to submerge myself in an environment I sought for so long. I met very engaged, supportive, and passionate people from all over the world. I’m very glad I did it.

    However, DO NOT expect this program to change your life immediately or make you an expert. For beginners, it’ll be a crash course in Design where you will be introduced to a bit of everything. The on going flow of work will make it very challenging to find time to practice and let concepts and techniques to really set in. It might feel like a sink or swim situation at times.This program is BEST for people with previous knowledge.

    I highly recommend to maintain ties with your current employer and take this course as a short leave of absence for personal or proffesional development. Alllow yourself some sort of security. Since there isn’t real job assistance, besides a recruiting program and an email telling you to keep your chin up, you willl need to work harder to find your place in design and a job.

    It’s essentially a Portofolio program. I appreciate the push to meet deadlines as in the “real world”, but considering time management can be learned, Portfolio week should be giving more care and time. Promoting NO SLEEP in order to finish certain projects for “sign off” is a bad move.

    What led me to Shillington was its focus on portfolio development, and formal training with design software (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Sketch). Prior to the program I had little to no experience with each, and was hoping to transition to the field of graphic design.

    Coming out of the program I’m fluent in each software, armed with an understanding of design principles and the portfolio I needed. The projects were very similar to the work I wished I could be doing while working at an agency beforehand, and now I’m confident in my abilities to complete those design projects and more. You gain significant practice reps – completing 30+ projects in a 3 month window. If it were easy, it wouldn’t be worth it!

    Shillington provides all the resources to make it possible, with hands-on learning, one-on-one teaching, and tons of positive energy throughout. NYC also immerses you in a world of design to learn from.
