“I really loved this module, but for me, what stood out the most were the business modules! These gave me a much better understanding of how owning my own design business works, I’ve started to develop a 5 year plan for my business. I’m working on my portfolio now.” – Gillian Lees

ChynnaBrown-LoveHeartFlowersPinkEcho550px“The course has helped me in all areas, but I have found that I have learnt so much of Photoshop and Illustrator in a very short time. A few months ago I found these programs extremely hard to use but now feel confident in using them.
The advice on marketing and manufacturing was invaluable!” – Chynna Brown
