Design education with passion and purpose.

Our innovative approach to design education means students achieve amazing results in a seriously short amount of time. Check out our points of difference.

No experience necessary. Seriously. You don’t need to interview or submit a portfolio. We only require passion for design and 100% dedication to the course.

Fast, intensive course to prepare you for the real working world. Shillington is perfect for go-getters who love an active learning environment. Theory and practice are strategically woven together from day one, so your brain is trained to think like a practising designer—creating confidence to tackle your first design job.

Innovative and efficient curriculum. Our course is designed and timetabled for students to get the most out of every minute. Our international curriculum team integrates industry-applicable lessons, tools and topics. We keep things flexible so the curriculum can adapt to our fast-changing industry.

Friendly, talented teachers in an inclusive classroom environment. No stuffy lectures. Instead, you’ll be taught by wildly talented and encouraging designers who teach from real-world experience. In a class of 24 or less, you’ll feel supported throughout your study and make fast friendships.

#Shillumni network and reputation. Our graduates are the best testament to our out-of-the-box teaching model. When you graduate, you’ll join an esteemed group of #Shillumni who work at some of the best studios and agencies around the world.

Create work like this

Want to create work like this? Trust us—you can! The top-notch work you see here was created by real students in only 3 months full-time or 9 months part-time. Most had never even touched design software before.

At Shillington, all students graduate with a portfolio and working website showcasing their best branding, digital and packaging design projects.

Student Showcase

Creative Director, The New York Times / T Brand Studio

I was blown away by the level of talent the Shillington candidates showed in their portfolios, some of which showed capabilities beyond their years and even surpassed the work of established professionals. We hired within the month and our new designer is already proving to be a great addition to the team.

Industry connections

Studying at Shillington is up there with the best experiences of my life, and I can say that without even thinking about what it has done for my career.
