It was a fantastic course than gave me more insight toward visual guidelines, ideas and strategies that I have already put into place the day after class.

Hands-on Visual Design Classes

“I really benefited from the way the class alternated between demos and then repeating those demos in an exercise. Also, the way the textbook is set up, providing all the files, is foolproof if I need to refresh on what I learned later... As a professional designer, it was also nice to be taught by someone that could comment on which aspects of the programs are useful in day to day work.”
Pamela Frawley, Creative Services Manager/Designer
