Design is culture. It has the power to drive business. To make our everyday lives easier. To make our world more beautiful. To invent the future. At Portfolio Center, we teach our design students to value initiative as much as talent, discipline as well as imagination.
Our comprehensive design program prepares you to be a great thinker. Our graduates enter the marketplace as creative strategists and accomplished craftspeople. We focus on developing creative strategy for every type of media environment.
We expect a lot from you, so you can expect a lot out of us. Like the best creative network and resources in the country, a warm and supportive environment, classmates who share your commitment. Portfolio Center is a creativity incubator. Leaders are born here.
