Hear what our students have to say about their time at The Book Shop:




"Some things I liked about the Intro class include getting to work on different styles of advertising, receiving feedback on that work for improvement and being able to see and listen to the feedback of the other students. It's a very hands-on and welcoming environment. It's a great way to start a network in this field."

O. Alvarez
LA Intro/Spring '24

"The instructors in my Intro class gave really insightful and constructive criticism. They are super encouraging and really care about our success! The Book Shop has made it so easy to come up with ads, I feel like I'm cheating. Do it now. Don't waste time."

R. Nance
LA Intro/Spring '24

"Because of this class, I now have the tools to create a top level portfolio. And while I'm only completing my second class, I feel like I understand what an ad campaign is and how to create one. I still have a ways to go but if future classes are like this one, I would tell anyone who is interested in The Book Shop that they are going to learn a lot and be very well prepared in creating a portfolio and entering the advertising world."

M. Bruner
LA Intermediate/Spring '24

"In Advanced One, not only did I build 3 campaigns but I learned a lot about expanding extensions to really make a campaign something to look at in my portfolio. I already have told all my friends and colleagues who are interested in Copywriting or Art Direction to take the Book Shop. It's stupid not to."

P. Crawford
LA Advanced One/Spring '24

"In this Advanced Two class, continuing to push and kill ideas simultaneously is an essential thing to learn before getting hired. Perseverance is key to being a good partner and building a great book."

C. Diaz
LA Advanced Two/Spring '24

"In Teams level, hearing the opinions of an experienced creative showed me how my ideas work and don't work. It helped me evolve my way of thinking and evaluating so I can get to that professional level. The Book Shop is a streamlined way to get complete campaigns into your portfolio."

B. Engel
LA Teams/Spring '24

"Teams class helped me learn to think more holistically about all aspects of a campaign, from concept through execution. I now have experience learning to negotiate and communicate as a group. This is a great program for anyone wanting to learn, practice, and hit the ground running. It focuses on building the skills you'll need to work in advertising"

E. Gabin
LA Teams/Spring '24

"In the Copy class, I went back to earlier campaigns and brought them to life in new ways through TV and radio scripts. I think bigger, but more strategically. The instructor was honest, straightforward and insightful. I've never seen someone bring an idea to life with words so quickly and elegantly. Take this class! "

C. O' Callaghan
Copy/Spring '24

"In this Digital 6-week class, I thought the assignments were creative and allowed for thinking about ads in new ways. I felt more room to try out of the box stuff. I think this class really pushed my ads closer to making the portfolio cut. Just the practice of taking ideas so much further was beneficial. Take this class when offered. The teacher is continually invested in students and inspires them to push their creative potential."

J. Speers
LA Digital Creative/Fall '23

"I finally have some visual focus and a better holistic understanding of the entire concept, focusing on what will make my book stand out. Art Direction Layout class is well worth the experience to at least get a critical look at your work."
