  • Online Graphic Design Bootcamp

Study 9 months part-time from anywhere

Online Graphic Design Course

With Shillington’s online graphic design course, you’ll graduate with a solid understanding of creative problem solving, design theory and software. Create an incredible design portfolio and master how to discuss and sell your work—essential skills for any creative career.

We move fast and mentor students to work like professional designers, following clear processes and meeting tight deadlines. Before long, you’ll be tackling creative briefs—experimenting with idea generation on paper, jumping onto the computer and creating polished results to real-world specifications.

Learn in varied ways from experienced teachers. We keep our lectures short and sweet, saving plenty of time to put your new skills into practice and develop your design eye. Enjoy engaging demonstrations, dynamic discussions, industry lectures and group workshops on everything from typography to user experience (UX).

Study online wherever you are in the world

The online graphic design course is designed to keep you engaged and connected with your fellow classmates and teachers over the duration of the course. A majority of lectures, demonstrations and briefs will be delivered live by your teachers during class time, and additional study material will be made available as recordings after the class.

The teachers will be there to guide and support you in real-time as they would in the classroom. You’ll also be working on real world briefs individually, in pairs or groups with your fellow students to apply what you’ve learnt.

All online classes are delivered live in the listed Time Zones, meaning you can have the Shillington experience from wherever you live. Search below to check out what Time Zones work for you.
