M.A.D.E Diploma Programs

M.A.D.E is redefining the concept of a career school. Our programs incorporate high-level creative and critical thinking skills previously confined to 4-year colleges, with more hands-on technical training than traditional degree programs. M.A.D.E prepares graduates to perform in today’s fast paced work environments and communicate effectively with clients.

The focus is on Portfolio Development. Our programs feed into specific art and design industries where a portfolio is paramount to landing jobs. M.A.D.E graduates leave equipped with a cohesive portfolio of art or design showcasing their unique creative voice. We teach the art of persuasive presentation and professional contract negotiation so that our graduates are fully prepared to translate their success in the classroom into the workforce.

M.A.D.E is committed to providing an educational experience that is valuable, worthwhile and relevant to the burgeoning employment landscape. With small class size and one-on- one instruction, students are supported in reaching their highest potential. M.A.D.E is dedicated to producing the best-prepared professionals entering the industry.

All aspects of the Graphic Design program at MADE contribute to the student’s development of a cohesive design portfolio. The sequence of courses and the content addressed helps students to build a foundation of technical skills, then hone their unique voice as a designer, and finally carry out their vision in a variety of print, package and web-based media. The result is a body of work that is sharp, attention grabbing, and representative of the student’s unique visual interests.

MADE instructors are committed to helping students achieve this goal. That means arming students with the skills and knowledge needed to realize their own vision, not interpret the vision of instructors. No two graphic design portfolios are alike at MADE. Choices in concepts, visuals and media are dependent upon the personal goals and ambitions of the student, with instructors tailoring their instruction to meet the student’s needs. That’s the personal attention that makes portfolio development at MADE so unique.

Once the portfolio has taken shape, students benefit from expert guidance in preparing their portfolio for presentation in the real world. In addition to meticulous review of creative projects, students practice making presentations before groups of professionals where they must defend and discuss their work. Instructors also guide students through the process of refining their resumes and writing proposals and contracts standard with today’s industry practices. The goal is to give students all the tools they will need to compete and succeed in the job market upon completion of the Graphic Design program.
