Welcome to Friends of Design – Academy of Digital Arts, one of Cape Town’s leading digital training institutions.
Founded in 2006 by a team of Very Passionate People, the academy officially opened its doors in 2007. Since that first day, we’ve been committed to exceptional training standards, and enjoy national and international industry accreditation. In fact, as well as being a recognised centre of Higher Education registered with the Department of Higher Education, we are also an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC) and a Certiport Authorised Testing Centre.
Through out the years, Friends of Design has attracted staff and students from around the globe. This international network keeps our finger on the pulse of global trends and we constantly update our techniques and technology to keep our students on the cutting-edge of design.
Our passionate lecturers also play a vital role in keeping our academy current and connected. They’re all practicing professionals in their fields, bringing invaluable real world knowledge, contacts and insights to the table.
On top of all this, our campus is pretty special – nestled in the beating heart of Cape Town’s city centre – the ideal spot for absorbing the local lifestyle and culture. This creative energy drives our classes, which remain firmly rooted in international best practices, and are designed to prepare our students for a creative career anywhere in the world.
We look forward to welcoming you to Friends of Design – Academy of Digital Arts.
After the huge success of our last Origami Obsession event, we're back with another one, but this time we are combining it wit our popular Mandala Merge event!
It is time for your Origami skills to unfold and get your creative juices flowing! Cranes, flowers, mandalas and more are waiting to be shaped and created by you!
We will, of course, have origami plans, paper, paints, brushes, pens, pencils, chalk, crayons and more for you to get your creative on.
We look forward to seeing you there!
