D&AD Partners With Google To Expand Design Education.
D&AD Shift is a free design school program for creatives over the age of 18, who do not already have a degree-level qualification. It’s been running since 2016 and is a 12-week program led by successful industry professionals. Until now, D&AD Shift has been running courses in New York and London, but it has announced that thanks to a partnership with Google, it will be rolling out the program to cities worldwide; the expansion also means the courses will cover a broader set of skills. If you’re an aspiring creative hoping to make it as a professional, the Shift program is a fantastic, free opportunity to develop skills, build confidence, and grow your portfolio. Applications for the London program are open now and must be submitted by 26 April. The New York-based program will run from October to February 2022. For news on when the design courses are coming to a city near you, sign up for the newsletter.
