All programs are hosted on Zoom!

Classes are run by the industries top creatives, so all students have the chance to be fully-prepared to work at their dream advertising agency.

Both copywriting and art direction students graduate with a full portfolio and a book180 certificate.

Just like in an advertising agency, book180 partners copywriters and art directors together to develop campaigns. Both you and your partner will concept big ideas for brands together, and once you land on an idea you both love, you’ll venture down parallel paths to bring the idea to life.

Art Direction

Do you spend a lot of time making things?

T-shirts, doodles, photographs, paintings, vector illustrations? Do you think so visually that it’s hard to settle on the PERFECT paint color for a room?

Do you love art and photography, but haven’t found a job where you can use that skill creatively?

Fate brought you here!
This program is for you!

Art directors work to solve problems visually, like a graphic designer. They create the overall visual artistic feel of an ad campaign, focusing on the photography and typography. They also create logo and visual identities for brands, and often think of the funny details in commercials that make people laugh.

Do you love short stories or poetry?

Do you spend time crafting the perfect Instagram caption? Do song lyrics or stand up comedian jokes often live rent-free in your head?

Do you love writing but haven’t found a job where you can use that skill creatively?

Look no further!
This program is for you!

Copywriters work to solve problems with words. They tell stories in commercials, on TikTok, in magazine print ads, and even on billboards—stories that will help the world gain a new perspective. A copywriter wrote the taglines “Just Do It” and “A diamond is forever.”

It’s a fun career. Full of a LOT of writing. Just ask Sarah—she spent years working as a copywriter.

Classes meet live over Zoom almost every night, and you regularly meet with your classmates on Zoom to concept. So you quickly become friends with the other creatives in your semester. We also host live guest speakers, online movie screenings, online costume nights, Quiplash game nights, and raffle nights with some pretty sweet prizes. Students build strong friendships, help make each other’s books better, and even apply for jobs together.
