Method

In this interactive online course you’ll study independently, going through the lecture materials whenever suits you best. We will contact you to set up a kick-off call with a teacher, where we’ll go through your individual situation and make a personal study plan to reach your goals. Our teachers follow your process and give assistance and support in every step of the course.

Some students may need more content-specific guidance and assignments to create new content, some already have a selection of works but need help in putting it together for a communicative and visually interesting series of projects. You will get personal feedback from every assignment return you make to ease you forward.

You will be studying in our DesignWeb study platform, with the lectures and assignments available in an easy-to-use online environment. You’ll get access to DesignWeb right from signing up.

 

Complimentary lesson materials

Creating a portfolio takes time. Your own commitment and drive are the key elements in creating a successful portfolio. All the artwork and processes in your portfolio must be done by you. It may be difficult to know what kind of work to do or how to ideate interesting projects especially if you do not yet have so much technical skills. Scandinavian Design School offers also additional lessons to tailor the course to fit to your dream career demands. We have both drawing and painting classes, lessons in design and conceptual thinking, perspective, prototype & scale model techniques and even classes for students who want to learn the basics of drawing again. Contact us to discuss your personal needs and let’s create a successful study plan tailored just for you!
