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




"The Book Shop has pointed me in a clear direction. If you have an interest in working in advertising but don't know where to start, look no further than the Book Shop."

T. Cook
LA Intro/Spring '19

"I like how engaging and honest my instructors were with our assignments and their consideration for adding ideas and tips we can use for future assignments or for our careers. The Book Shop is a remarkable place to learn about the world of advertising and Copywritin or Art Direction. It is a place that will push you to go beyond your comfort zone while also making you feel safe to be there and make mistakes."

M. Sia
LA Intro/Spring '19

"I look at ads completely differently now. I can see the strategy and the concept and that helps me in my own work. Each semester I get more clear in what it takes. The Book Shop is an amazing school. The pricing is really reasonable and the teachers are accessible and knowledgable. Two thumbs up!!"

L. Stewart
LA Intermediate/Spring '19

"The Book Shop has helped me improve SO much. All the creative techniques when it comes to building my creative work has allowed me to dig deeper and become more confident in my abilities. I recommend it 1000%!"

A.M. Shelly
LA Advanced One/Spring '19

"I didn't know anything about making ads before this class, so I owe everything I know to it. It's been a lot of fun. Watching case studies and breaking those down, watching my cohort's campaign ideas take shape and
I'm pretty happy with the campaign that I came up with. And The Book Shop doesn't break the bank."

C. Hughes
LA Advanced Two/Spring '19

"My instructor's feedback was really thoughtful and made you think differently. I understand how to create a concept that's not necessarily attached to a brand, which is awesome! I also feel like I have a better understanding of how to see a campaign from ideation to completion. I now have some awesome portfolio pieces!"

A. Hendrickson
LA Teams/Spring '19

"The instructor clearly cares about his students and wants to help guide them towards the best campaigns possible. And watching other students' campaigns evolve is sometimes almost as useful as guiding my own campaign through the paces."

C. Hanna
LA Teams/Spring '19

"Overall, this Copy course has made me a more well-rounded writer capable of handling headline copy, and also long form body copy along with commercial scripts. I look forward to incorporating these techniques into my portfolio to push the creative boundaries of my campaigns. Before Book Shop, I had no idea where to begin to break into the advertising industry. This program has thoughtfully laid out the building blocks for developing the needed skill set, and you'll come out with a portfolio of work to help land an entry-level position."

G. Augusto
Copy/Spring '19

"In this class, I learned more about how data can be and should be incorporated into the creative process. My thinking is not as static and moving forward it's about thinking of all the different mediums. It's about thinking conceptually, differently, big and in all different formats. Taking The Book Shop has lit that fire up again."

S. Alvarez
LA Digital Creative/Fall '18

"Amazing feedback that allowed me to grow and develop my skills as an art director. I learned more of the basics of design skills, as well as how to push the boundaries to create original advertising layouts. Hands down worth every penny! "

A. Breaux
AD/Layout Crash Course/Spring '19
