Diana matei

"I loved the class because I have been challenged in ways I haven't experienced before. While knowing the software, Michelle has done a good job of pushing me in a creative way towards doing more and achieving more than I thought I could. The biggest take away I had from the class is just how real life it felt. The time constraints and situations we were put in were incredibly realistic, which is an environment I’ve never been in before."

Diana Matei, University of Miami '20

Kate clawson

"Digital Design taught me an immense amount about design on a practical level, while giving me an idea as to what pursuing a career in design may be like. I learned how important design is in our everyday lives and the amount of consideration involved in the development of everything around us."

Kate Clawson, Tufts University '21

Camelia betancourt

"All of the things that we learned in Design are completely relevant to so many fields today! It was definitely fast-paced and out of my comfort zone slightly, but felt so current. We learned about brand communication and development, as well as the software that comes with it!"

Camelia Betancourt, Iowa State '20

Noelle betkowski

"Design is very multi-faceted and all of its branches/fields take a lot of work; for the most part, you get back what you put into it. Michelle, our teacher, has been one of the most supportive and constructive teachers I've ever had, creatively and otherwise."

Noelle Betkowski, Metropolitan State '21
