What is D&AD Shift with Google?
D&AD Shift with Google is our free night school, for self-made creatives without a college degree. This year Shift is being delivered part in-person and part online, with industry experts from New York’s top brands and agencies delivering 2-night school sessions a week from October to February.
You’re the hustler, the visionary, sometimes the disruptor — your ravenous appetite for bold, bright, and brilliant ideas is insatiable. You’re the innovator, the bar raiser, flexing effortlessly on every nay-sayer — you have an appetite for creative excellence and can stomach a tough review.
Shift is an intensive night school for the determined, for the hungry. You’ll receive insight from industry professionals at the height of their careers, steering you and like-minded creatives through real briefs, devouring secrets of the industry one bite at a time.
Get your fill of industry knowledge, no degrees needed — talent and tenacity are the only credentials that hold weight here.
Not only will you leave Shift with a network of notable names and iconic brands, but also with a tool kit that’ll help you conquer and thrive on the journey ahead. It’s time to feed your ambition. Apply now.
"Without diversity there is no creativity."
