Diana matei 9d3088ab1e5f6b96b21dc7e1ace6f41059ffb55c0f1b59e688515baaaca6c49e

"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

"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!"

"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."
