We’re changing the way digital design education is done

Design education is broken. Academia can no longer keep up with the rapid pace of technological evolution and its impact on society. Digital media is too broad and dynamic a field to be encompassed in a traditional curriculum.

This is why we founded The New Digital School, an innovative digital design program. TNDS is tailored to and driven by each student’s professional goals and personal needs. It’s a place to work on both personal and client projects, with the support and guidance of industry experts, a network of mentors, a team of facilitators and your fellow students.

We believe design education should be:

Student
centered

You’ll be working on real projects for real clients, and you’ll acquire skills in line with current and future industry needs. And your learning won’t end here. Change is the only constant, so we’ll give you the tools to adapt to new situations and challenges.

Industry
led

You’ll be working on real projects for real clients, and you’ll acquire skills in line with current and future industry needs. And your learning won’t end here. Change is the only constant, so we’ll give you the tools to adapt to new situations and challenges.

Community
based

The journey will be tailored to you and driven by you, but that doesn’t mean you have to take it alone! Fellow students, mentors, guests and internal facilitators will be there to support you whenever you need it.
