COMPANIES THAT HAVE HIRED OUR GRADUATES
As soon as I walked into the studio I knew what to do. I love producing content and telling the stories, and I learned how to do that at the Academy.
My classmates and I have felt that our education has proven to be invaluable as we step into the profession. The program prepared us for a seamless transition between my education and career. I am so thankful for the support from my faculty in and outside the classroom.
I met a senior design recruiter from Adidas after my first Academy of Art University runway show in San Francisco. A year later, he got back in contact and I forwarded him my latest portfolio. Within a couple of days I was offered a six-month internship at the North American headquarters in Portland.
What really drew me in was the work of the student body. When I saw what students get to do here, I knew that this was the place for me—that the energy here would be electric.
Studying at the Academy has been a life changing experience to me. I’ve established myself as an artist. I’ve opened my mind to a lot of great new things, from the amazing work of different photographers to the way I approach my photo shoots and interact with people.
The Academy experience is packed with opportunities to work and network with industry partners. This semester, teams from the Schools of Industrial Design, Interior Architecture & Design, Advertising, and Fashion work together with automobile manufacturer Subaru to create holistic experiences and products—from concept to pitch.Learn More
