  • Graphic Design, Online Schools.

    Looking into getting a degree online from Ai (Art Institute) or Academy of Art online. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with these schools and if they are accredited and looked at , just like any other school. Possibly gonna be Graphic design major or Photography.

    Thanks for any or all input!

          First off there are two major types of accreditation that you'll need to look into. But at one point in time I was considering an online school. I had requested some information from the art institute and a consult via phone. I had a conversation with someone who claimed to be in charge of admissions, but couldn't shake the feeling I was talking to a used car dealer. Very pressuring and almost desperate to get you enrolled into the school. This was a major turnoff for me, and for the next several weeks they would blow up my phone, calling at least 3 times a day trying to talk me into enrolling. Even if the school is worthwhile I couldn't take any academic institution seriously that seems to want to enroll as many people as possible.

            I don't take any graphic design program seriously that doesn't require a portfolio review of prospective students.

                Tried to find it on Netflix last night, but it wasn't there. Tried Amazon Prime too, and couldn't find it. I would like to see it, though.

                If you take a photo of a red apple, the image will be red. If you take a photo of a grey apple, throw it away because it's spoiled. If you take a photo of both a red and grey apple at night, the image...

                As someone who spends quite a bit of time reviewing and interviewing applicants, I pay some attention to job titles, but not necessarily for the reasons one might expect.
