NEW YORK — The Boston Web Design School will be opening its first classes in 2018.
The nonprofit web design company, which started with about 30 students in 2013, said the program will bring students from all backgrounds together.
Brisbane-based design company Digital Creative Academy will be joining the new program as well.
Students will learn from world-renowned designers like Tim Ferriss, Mark Karpeles, and Peter Thiel.
This is the first time in more than 30 years that the program has hosted classes at all.
Digital Creative Academy was founded in the late 1980s by Tim Ferrison, Peter Thiel, and Michael Dell.
“It’s really exciting to have a program that is not just focused on web design, but also design for the workplace, so we can all have a deeper and more collaborative understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and a deeper appreciation of the world around us,” said Digital Creative founder Mark Kepner.
In addition to digital design, Digital Creative also offers training in business, law, media, design, branding, and more.
The curriculum includes digital design fundamentals, interactive design, and design for business.
The first class will start in September 2018.
Digital Creative has been training students in web design since 2011.
More than 1,500 students have participated in the classes.
They are the latest in a long line of web design schools, including Harvard University, Stanford University, and Northwestern University.
