Media Design School named in the Top 5 Creative Schools in the World

Pitch 10 Sep 2010 Comments

The Adschool at Media Design School has been named the fourth best creative school of the decade by the YoungGuns Awards, which recognise the world’s hottest creative talent under the age of thirty.

YoungGuns has revealed the top 10 advertising schools worldwide, with Media Design School fourth on the list as the leading school for young creatives after Miami Ad School, Germany, the School of Visual Arts, New York and Miami Ad School, Florida, USA. No other New Zealand institute made the list.

Previous YoungGuns winners from Media Design School now work with leading local agencies such as Colenso and Special, and international agencies such as DDB Switzerland, Taxi in Toronto and The Hive in Dublin.

“YoungGuns is all about celebrating young creative talent and we’ve seen some incredible work from students since the awards were founded in 2000,” said YoungGuns founder Kristian Barnes.

“As we recognise the best of the past decade, it’s an exceptional achievement for Media Design School to place within the top 10 schools, especially when you consider the size of some of the other schools in the top 10.

“New Zealand has long been a leader in the international advertising community and we’ll see great things for years to come from the students of today.”
