Studying design in San Francisco is the best solution. The city itself disposes to inspiration: walking and enjoying architecture, listening to street musicians, going to museums. With a student card you will get a discount.
The university sets the bar high, but it itself provides EVERYTHING that is necessary to complete any task. The teachers are enthusiastic people, professionals in their field, they tell a lot from personal experience - both in educational specialties (such as the subtlety of design-printing) and how to find work in the USA, to strengthen the portfolio, to improve skills and salary, what to do after high school, etc. This is very useful - you feel that you will not be a lonely specialist with an expensive diploma, but you can really be realized in a profession.
I would also say for the cinema faculty as I have got friends there: they are also very happy, they say that the level is no lower than in famous New York or Hollywood schools (at the same time it is a bit easier to do, and the price is a little more affordable) .
