If you wish to design there's no better quality career training than at the Pacific Design Academy in downtown Victoria, British Columbia. Our programs expand your ability to think and design creatively. We help foster your skills in drawing, drafting and illustration and develop your competency in the use of market relevant software. However, at heart it's not about tools or media, it's about design. The Pacific Design Academy was founded in 1991, to provide quality education in the 'design arts'. From our earliest program offerings in Interior Design, the Academy has grown to become the pre-eminent private design school in Victoria.

Our downtown location is easily accessible by public transit, bicycle or by foot. Victoria is only a short ferry ride from Vancouver and Seattle making this area a preferred destination for students.
