Students learning graphic design & coding at Noble Desktop

Learn Real-World Design & Coding Skills

“Noble Desktop is far and away the most efficient way of gaining computer graphics skills. They give real-world exercises to work on, teach best practices, and inspire many an ‘aha!’ moment. Highly recommended.”
Joanne Hu

29 Years of Experience

Since 1990 we have perfected the craft of teaching. If students get hung up on an issue, we tweak the class to make it better. We’re the longest running independent training center for code and design in NYC.

“Noble Desktop has amazing free seminars, classes and a great variety of computer class options. I have learned things in free seminars that have totally helped me in my career. I am going for the Web Development Certificate and Noble Desktop, through study, has given me the confidence to achieve my career goals.”

Victoria Greiss, Creative Director-Special Projects

“The class I took made me feel like all the time I missed not knowing how to use this new software was suddenly erased! I'm ready to get right back into the field and I'm taking as many classes as I can to learn more! The free seminars are a gift! I met a lot of people just like myself when before I felt very out of the loop in graphic design! This school has really brought back my motivation.”

Jessica Lermsider, Graphic Designer

“I learned more at your free one hour class than from another all day instruction.”

JP Endress, Senior Production Artist, McGraw-Hill

“I have already mentioned Noble Desktop to many friends a place to get up-to-speed on the current trends in web development. The amount of knowledge you give away for free on your site and in seminars is a true testament to who you are as people and a company.”

Lane Spigner, Christopher Street Financial

“I have been a fan of Noble Desktop for the past ten years. It is always a friendly, supportive environment taught by industry professionals. They offer classes in the latest applications and have free quality seminars to get a good overview with valuable tips. You can choose to enroll to take the full class but never a hard sell. I'm looking forward to taking my new skills forward. Thank you, Noble Desktop!”

Diane Velletri

“If you’ve taken any free seminars, you know how good they are. Now apply that to the classes. They are great.”
