Different faces – one spirit

Students come from all over the world to join the FIDM Family. United by their passion, ambition, and drive, they share a common goal – to be the best at what they love to do.

I have had a passion for graphic design since middle school. As I learned more about the field, I started to love the idea of people staring at my billboards, purchasing products with my packaging, and being influenced to see a movie because of my key art. I love that FIDM is a small, private, and focused art school with a strong alumni association, instructors who work in your field and advisors for just about anything you need” –Angelique Felice Carrisal, Graphic Design

I really enjoy the environment at FIDM. It’s very diverse and cultural, with many international students. I've met people from Japan, London, and Paris.” – Andrew Holmes, Fashion Design

I’ve known that I wanted to work in fashion since the second grade when I told my teacher that when I grew up, I was going to work for Giorgio Armani.” – Ryan Pinter, Visual Communications

I think the thing that makes the FIDM Student body unique is that we are all from different states, ethnicities, religions, and styles and yet we all come together on our one common factor, which is our love for art and design.” – Natasha Endrei, Merchandise Product Development

I am an international student from Indonesia. I was born and raised there until I was 14 years old. I love traveling and I have traveled through 17 countries in four continents. I have lived and studied in four countries: Indonesia, Singapore, Canada and the U.S. I am the oldest son out of eight children. I speak English and Indonesian fluently, and understand two other languages.” – Arief Wongso Sihono, Fashion Design
