Hundreds and Hundreds of Book Shop Students Hired Over The Years?

That's B.S.

That’s The Book Shop. You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking to get a job on the creative side of advertising and win some awards on the way to doing it! We offer creative concept classes for those interested in becoming Copywriters and Art Directors, which will help you to build a portfolio (otherwise known as “your book”) of ads so that you can go out and get a job at an ad agency, big or small!  We have been guiding students to finished portfolios and great jobs for over 25 years.  In fact, more & more former Book Shop students are working at some of the top agencies, in jobs that have taken them all the way up to Creative Director and Executive Creative Director levels. There is only one school here in LA that can say that!
