Relive the Overload NZ Yoobee experience! From live drawings, to the amazing artworks showcased and sold by our students and tutors, the two-day event was a surplus of creativity. Anime cosplay characters were brought to life, and the fun and interactive draw-along sessions was a hit to the young and promising talents. 🎨✨

What a treat our level 6 film students had this week! 🎥

Oscar-winning and world-renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins along with his wife James joined a zoom call with Wellington's level 6 film students on Wednesday. Among Deakins' extensive 50-year cinematography portfolio is films such as 1917, Shawshank Redemption, Sicario, No Country For Old Men, Prisoners and many many more.
The students were absolutely delighted to get this amazing opportunity to chat to a film legend and ask him questions.
The recording of this session is available to watch on the Team Deakins Youtube channel!

Thanks so much .deakins for joining us, and a special shout out to the Wellington level 6 film tutors Michael and Ebed who made it possible! 🙌

Our Story

Over the course of 2018 Design & Arts College of New Zealand (D&A) and Yoobee School of Design merged under their parent company New Education Group (NEG).

This collaboration brings together two of New Zealand's most widely recognised design schools, with between them over 60 years’ experience in tertiary education and expertise to now be offered under one roof and one name; Yoobee School of Design.

With the best of both coming together we are excited to be able to offer qualifications that will produce the next generation of creatives for the domestic and international industry.

Currently only our Yoobee’s Christchurch campus is offering qualification in fashion and makeup artistry alongside our digital design based qualifications in Animation, Film, Web & Graphic Design, with plans to expand these new courses into our other campuses across New Zealand in the future.
