WHAT OTHERS SAY

"I very much enjoyed the Graphic Design course. Chrissie is a great teacher and the content was really useful for taking basic design skills to the next level. Each lesson had a good mix of learning new practical skills and personal project development, and despite being hesitant about 'zoom' lessons they worked really well with following 'screen sharing' presentations etc. I would definitely recommend!"
