Where Creative Minds Can Become Who They Are Meant To Be

Portfolio Center is the original portfolio school for art direction, copywriting, graphic design and photography.

Founded by Ron Seichrist in 1978, Portfolio Center was the first of its kind. The institution created and defined the concept of the portfolio school as an immersive experience that replicates the creative professional environment. Now, as part of the Miami Ad School network—Ron’s other brainchild—Portfolio Center students can start their creative education in Atlanta and study or intern in up to four additional cities around the globe.
