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.

The Graphic Design program at MADE integrates teaching of design software into creative projects that culminate in finished portfolio pieces. Instructors help students navigate the latest versions of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign to produce imagery that is vivid, eye-catching, and in line with professional standards for print and web production. The integration of software training in the creative classroom allows MADE students to develop a working methodology for creating, managing, sharing and preparing documents for production. This means that students have the opportunity to become truly savvy in a wide range of technical skills, instead of acquiring skills piecemeal. This approach includes training students on how to maneuver through various software programs as appropriate to the specific needs a project as well as how to manage data and how to prepare documents for various production processes. This training helps students enter the job market with the confidence to execute complex digital design tasks in a fast-paced environment.

In the Digital Illustration class, students are taught the artistry of vector drawing, icon and logo creation, and text manipulation using Adobe Illustrator. In the Digital Imaging class, students explore the depth of possibilities within Adobe Photoshop to create believable, illusionistic digital art and creative image manipulations. Editing techniques used in postproduction (colorimetric corrections, curve adjustments, noise reduction, and managing white balance) as well as diverse conversion formats and exporting of data files will be included.
