GSD&M Starts Ad School

Could GSD&M now stand for “Good Schooling is Dank and Magical?” Just like the peeps at 72andSunny, the Austin-based agency formerly known colloquially as “Idea City” is entering the realm of academia with its new school, the Austin Creative Department.

According to the school’s website, the ACD tries to distinguish its curriculum, price ($750 per course) and teaching-style from others in that classes are “taught by senior-level working professionals, not by full-time ‘teachers.’” We’ve also heard that the schools founder and director, GSD&M CD Will Chau (pictured) intends to bring people from all over the nation as guest teachers and lecturers. Aside from a few photographers, the current list of those participating in the school is solely the GSD&M cast, so we’re eager to see who else Chau has up his sleeve.

Classes start in June, and find out enrollment information here.
