School for creatives is coming to Joburg


Red and Yellow SchoolThe widely regarded Red & Yellow School, which has operated successfully in Cape Town for the past 22 years, is arriving in Johannesburg next year.

Johannesburg’s campus is set to be located in one of the iconic buildings in the heart of the city centre, 84 Albertina Sisulu Street, and will be an integral part of the current creative, downtown revival and rejuvenation that is underway.

The school will also be equipped to offer students a variety of courses, with one of the most popular being its three-year diploma in Graphic Design and Art Direction (GDAD).

Lyndi Lawson-Smith, Johannesburg campus director explained, “Students will not only learn the theory they need but will develop a broad range of skills that will enable them to pursue any number of creative career opportunities. The conceptually driven nature of the programme ensures the longevity of the qualification and its relevance to employers.”

With Braamfontein, Maboneng and Newtown housing thousands of creatives in the city, they are sure to hone their skills at the new school for left-brain thinkers.

During its 22 years of operation in Cape Town, Red & Yellow School has produced a long pedigree of graduates, many of them giants in the advertising and marketing industries today, and has achieved dozens of creative awards.

Two of these Red & Yellow hall-of-famers, who graduated from the school in 2007, are Veli Ngubane, entrepreneur and founding partner of the integrated marketing agency Avatar; and Kamini Pather, winner of Masterchef South Africa.
