“no amount of searching on Youtube for ‘how-to’ videos could compare to a well-structured course”
After finishing the Graphic Design Elevate course in 2020, I left with a newfound sense of confidence in my design skills. While I had a base level of skill using the Adobe Creative Suite, no amount of searching on Youtube for ‘how-to’ videos could compare to a well-structured course. Our course mentor was excellent and was able to share unique insights about working in the industry and how to get started as a freelancer. With my new skills, I’m able to take my digital art side hustle to a whole new level.
