Taking the skills I've learned will allow me to create a portfolio that stands out from the rest. If anyone is looking to create a portfolio to land a creative job in advertising, The Book Shop is the place to be!"

Daniel Wenzel
LA Intro/Fall '20

"After taking this class, I just feel like my way of thinking in regards to ads, is improving. I think the more I do it, the better I will get but I feel like my ads improved over the class. Compared to other schools, this is a fraction of the price, quicker, and you come out with a good understanding of the ad world."

K. Broberg
LA Intro/Fall '20

"My ads have improved while taking this class because it really makes me think through a product. It has shown me how to properly craft my ideas and hone my thinking into creating solid work. It has taken my ideas a step beyond. If you truly want to be better at your craft, this class will teach you how to shift your thinking, what your style of ideating is, and help you discover the truth behind a product to create a solid foundation for a successful campaign."

D. Escano
LA Intermediate/Fall '20

"Each class has helped me further refine my thinking and process for campaign building by providing new tools to work with and practice assignments that I can hopefully finish into book-worthy campaigns. If you want to get into advertising and learn from people in the business, while still maintaining a full work-life, The Book Shop provides flexibility and is very affordable for this level of expertise."

T. Konrad
LA Advanced One/Fall '20

"Taking this Advanced Two level class further pushed my understanding and knowledge of what is entailed to produce a successful campaign. If you're bursting at the seams with creativity and need a way to express it, this course will help you channel it to incredibly unexpected lengths. I now better understanding how important a big idea goes beyond just selling the actual product."

B. Wong
LA Advanced Two/Fall '20

"I considered going to one of the big expensive ad schools while in The Book Shop and almost got suckered into a massive amount of debt. Until I noticed a recent graduate from that same ad school, in my last teams class. If a big-name portfolio school student is coming to The Book Shop, there's something very obvious about not only that big school, but also the quality of Book Shop. My instructor had high expectations for us and pushed our work every single week to be better."

N. Nguyen
LA Teams/Fall '20

"In this teams class, I enjoyed the support, understanding, creativity, knowledge, and honesty that my instructor provided. This has helped broaden my creativity and process. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to begin in the advertising/creative world to check out The Book Shop. It will be worth it in the end!"

I. Fernandez
LA Teams/Fall '20

"My ads improved because I now can think of a broader way of executing concepts with copy effectively. The Book Shop has helped me craft a better portfolio by giving me the opportunity to create and record a radio ad for my book, which will help me make a campaign from another class even better. This ad school can help you to quickly get a high-quality portfolio and get the perspective and guidance of great instructors."

M. Wheatley
Copy/Spring '20

"It was very helpful to take this Digital class, as prior classes focused primarily on physical media. This class made me learn how to get my point across in different ways, which I hadn't really explored before. Digital media can be so open-ended and in this class, we learned all the different tools you can use to spread a message. I'd definitely recommend this class."

D. Gutierrez
LA Digital Creative/Fall '20

"I came to The Book Shop with a design background but not as much of a foundation in conceptual thinking. This class definitely helped me create a stronger bridge between my design background and strong conceptual work. I'm walking away from this class with work that I'm proud to add to my portfolio! I highly recommend The Book Shop program. Whether you are new to the world of advertising or you are already in the industry and want to further build out your portfolio, The Book Shop is the place to be."
