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.

CREATIVE PROCESS

In essence, the creative process is the manner in which a person develops an original idea. In a world saturated with design and advertising, it’s vital for graphic designers to be able to decipher complex problems, root out cliché solutions, and contribute ideas that are truly original and relevant. Developing the skill to think creatively requires a multifaceted approach to learning.

One component is constant questioning. By continually questioning one’s motives, as well as the motives of others, students become self-reflective. By being able to look at themselves objectively, students can be their own editors, pushing their ideas farther faster. Questioning helps students become capable of defending and explaining their intentions when selecting the most suitable form of expression. Another key component of creative thinking is experimentation. MADE’s courses give students the freedom to experiment with all types of tools and media that bring to light creative ideas that may otherwise have been left undiscovered.

A third component of growing creative thinking skills is collaboration. This is the process of exchanging ideas and working together towards a common goal. MADE classes mimic the dynamic of real-world design agencies with group projects that enable students to improve communication skills, practice finding common ground amongst divergent ideas, and yield a better result than they may have produced alone.
