Testimonials from students and industry.

Almost everything I did while at FoD has helped my career, from design to video editing. I’m now a full-stack web developer preparing to start my own game studio in a year or two.

I’m a front-end developer at an advertising agency, which isn’t the career I thought I’d be in. It was Friends of Design that opened my eyes to the possibilities of development, and studying there was the best decision.
