The New Digital School is a digital design program that aims to cut the crap out of traditional design education. It's completely student-centered and industry-led. Students learn at their own pace through masterclasses by renowned professionals and real projects with partner companies. No one-size-fits-all curriculum but real work experience.
This is the future of Digital Design Education! The concept, methods and ways are all appropriate to train the Designers of the future!Cons:
Just a little bit more of experience under their belt and the world is theirs.
I've been following these guys from The New Digital School since their beginning and also participating on their events, masterclasses, workshops and the like. Last time I was there, I was invited, as an industry expert, to review the portfolios of the students that were preparing themselves to find a job in the Digital Design market. I regularly interview and hire Designers for our company and as a Digital Designer myself, I think I can recognize talent when i see it. And in this case, I was genuinely impressed with the levels of quality and professionalism that this students could pull off in only one year of studing at TNDS and that was the exact moment that I started to truly believe on the concept of this school. Despite all of the different things, when compared to traditional schooling, TNDS really does work. It works so well in fact, that actually, one of the current students will probably get an offer from our company when they finish this school year.Paulo Fonseca has used this product for one year.
