FYI: The Top Tech Reads of the Week

At RED Academy, we treat our classrooms like board rooms and students like colleagues. This agency setting helps prep our students for the ‘real world’, giving them real projects with real clients that they can put on their portfolio come graduation time. But as a leading professional, it’s not just about design strategies and marketing plans. It’s also about staying on top of your industry, reading the important headlines, and ensuring you’re staying current with what’s #trending.
