Forsberg’s School was founded by Pia Forsberg and Pelle Lindberg in the autumn of 1991. Karl-Erik Forsberg and Vidar Forsberg were also on the board of directors at the start.
The school started with a distance course in graphic design and image. An evening class started in 1992 and the school moved into a small shop locale on Vikingagatan in Stockholm. The following year, 1993, the first class with day students was launched and Forsberg’s School had by then moved into the old Carnegie brewery stables on Kungsholmen. At the start of the full-time education, Gabor Palotai, Marie Wollbäck, Gyula Buvary, Anders Lindholm and Håkan Lindstrom began teaching at the school. The education quickly became a success and the school grew. Additional evening courses were added and a full-time education in Copywriting started in 1998. In the fall of 1999, Forsberg’s School moved to larger premises at Polhemsgatan until spring 2007 when the school finally moved to a house on Skinnarviksringen in Södermalm,
Stockholm’s southern district. The focus of the education is on graphic design, advertising and copywriting, with a goal to be innovative and creative in all types of design, advertising and communication. The idea is that the main fields of studies Graphic Design / Advertising and Copywriting should enrich each other and that the students cooperate on various projects. The students at Forsberg’s School have over the years made many exciting projects and exhibitions in Sweden and abroad, including the final exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, Nordiska Kompaniet, Hovstallet, Humlegården, Strand Hotel in Stockholm and Annika Sundvik Gallery in New York.
All teachers at the school are professionals in their respective fields and help to create unique projects, providing experience and insight into what is applicable in the industry right now. To our delight, many of the industry’s most successful names received their education at Forsberg’s School.
