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




"This course forces you to work your brain like never before and it sets a good foundation for creating your book. If you've decided you want to be a creative, Book Shop is your best starting point."

C. Kitagawa
LA Intro/Spring '17

"This program is supportive, positive, and it gives you access to the industry in a more personalized manner, where you might get lost in the shuffle and pay a fortune for the same eventual outcome by going to a large ad school."

L. Shook
LA Intro/Spring '17

"I feel like I'm able to better critically think of ad executions in the form of campaigns and flesh out ideas in a bigger way. The Book Shop is affordable and amazing! If you want a career in advertising and need to get a book together look no further!"

E. Lee
LA Intermediate/Spring '17

"This program is definitely helping me get to my goal of becoming an Art Director. As a designer, I'd have to have gone to a crazy expensive private art school to even been seen as potential for Art Direction. This school is giving me the opportunity to make that happen without being 20-50k in debt."

K. Izquierdo-Gallegos
LA Advanced One/Spring '17

"Joining the Book Shop is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Each instructor has taught me so much. They have given me the tools to sharpen my strategies, ideas and executions. If you are looking for a place to make a great portfolio to get into the advertising industry as a creative, then you better hit up the Book Shop."

T. Chiang
LA Advanced Two/Spring '17

"The instructors really pushed us to think of new and inventive ways to make 360 campaigns. I definitely think I have the tools I need to work in an agency based on what I've learned as a copywriter in the Book Shop."

K. Langston
LA Teams/Spring '17

"In Teams, our instructors were tough enough to make sure none of us settled on an idea that was mediocre, were passionate and understanding but they don't baby you. I've learned to notice when I'm doing too much. I just need to do the ad job, and do it well. It is awesome learning to work with a partner and going through the process of a real ad agency."

M. Marquez
LA Teams/Spring '17

"I think what I have improved upon the most was making every word count even when I have to do long copy and learning how to write copy that requires copy points. If you're thinking about getting into advertising, the Book Shop is a great, affordable way to help prepare you for a career."

T. Scott
Copy/Spring '17

"This class gave me a better understanding of advertising in the digital space. I love messing with the digital realm so I had a lot of fun in this class. I can confidently say that my ideas are improving after each course. I didn't know much about advertising prior to taking classes at The Book Shop. This program is worth it if you are interested in breaking into the ad industry."

T. Chiang
LA Digital Creative/Winter '17

"My favorite things about this course is the full life cycle from marker comps to completed campaign. The instructor cared and challenged me to want to only create the best for my book. I definitely got the importance of respecting and investing in the process."

B. Krajcir
AD/Layout Crash Course/Spring '17
