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




"Taking The Book Shop has brought me one step closer to building my portfolio and achieving my goal of working as a Copywriter. It's affordable compared to other portfolio schools, the instruction is quality and the network is established and always growing. Looking forward to my next class!"

N. Rudden
LA Intro/Winter '19

"If you want to learn about how to develop creative and start your portfolio, The Book Shop is the place to start. The cost is much lower than traditional schools and you get to learn straight from people in the industry."

D. Kumarasinghe
LA Intro/Winter '19

"I've learned all the steps you need to take to complete a creative campaign. It is a great program to build your portfolio to become an Art Director or Copywriter."

A. Sanchez
LA Intermediate/Winter '19

"Each step of The Book Shop has helped me build upon the skills I learned in my previous levels. Having the chance to get insight and feedback from real-life working professionals has been invaluable."

G. Augusto
LA Advanced One/Winter '19

"I am becoming a more honest and discerning creative, as opposed to someone who just wanted to fill up a square space with mediocre work. I am also becoming more comfortable with the 'process' and accepting that there is no way to rush it."

E. Brophy
LA Advanced Two/Winter '19

"My instructor's feedback was thoughtful, incisive and very detailed. If Book Shop is a condensed college education, then Teams is your thesis project. It's where the rubber meets the road, where you put everything you've learned thus far into practice."

S. Root
LA Teams/Winter '19

"In Teams, I got a better grasp on how to work on extensions and how to tie them into the campaign better. I owe my entire book to the courses taken at Book Shop. I wouldn't have the experience, time or teammates needed to put together such extensive campaigns."

J. Castaneda
LA Teams/Winter '19

"I feel like this Copy class gave me a huge creative boost which I couldn't be more thankful for. The Book Shop has taught me new skills which have helped sharpen my practice. I feel more excited about my future and do believe this will lead me to a successful career."

M. Khatri
Copy/Spring '18

"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

"With this crash course, I am definitely way more conceptual. I'm better able to back up all of my choices. My campaigns are more cohesive too and I'm able to add larger campaigns to my portfolio rather than just single pieces."

Z. Berman
AD/Layout Crash Course/Winter '19
