Each graphic design student enrolled in the program must have a robust laptop, and a subscription to the full version of Adobe Creative Cloud.

The graphic design industry standard platform is Mac. Therefore, our program is Mac-based, and recommends our students purchase Macbook Pro laptops.


Students are welcome to use PC laptops as long as the configuration supports the system requirements of Adobe Creative Cloud desktop and mobile apps.
IMPORTANT: In our experience, Microsoft Surface and Chromebook do not work well for this program. If you choose a PC, ensure the operating system is Windows.
