A UNIQUE BLEND OF AN OUTSTANDING CURRICULUM, HANDS-ON MENTORING, AND INSPIRATION FROM EXCELLENT DESIGNERS.

Our approach to design education is different from other design schools. We not only teach fundamental design skills, but also how to apply them in real world projects, business settings, team assignments, and more. Our program goes above and beyond equipping you with the essentials. We teach you skills which are complementary to a design career and which will give you the edge, such as creating effective copy. With the guidance of world-class designers, you’ll be uniquely poised for success come graduation time.

Learn from some of the best designers in the world
Our faculty contains award-winning, experienced, and active designers. Led by world-renowned designer David Carson, our faculty members are key designers in companies such as Google, Facebook, and more.

Learn from anywhere – Masters Design Lab is location agnostic and we don’t charge students outside of Canada or the United States extra. The fees are all the same. All of our classes are online, featuring a mix of live and pre-recorded lessons.

Continuous feedback and mentoring – Learning design through serious critique and feedback is very useful. Design is a process that needs to be learned and refined.

Live classes – We want you to become immersed in a real collaborative design experience. Our live classes will enable you to listen and be heard, learning valuable lessons from the teacher and peers along the way.

Over 25 courses - We have not held back, creating a 25 course program featuring courses only taught in our design program, such as The Business of Design.
* Available only to full program students
