Very useful course. Really puts you to practice. I learned a lot and feel encouraged to continue. Reviewing other peer's work was inspiring and gave me fresh ideas about what I could have done better.
I'm so happy i did this course. Gail, you're amazing and you made my imagination go wild with just your words. I can see you love your craft and that's very inspiring. Enjoyed this course all the way!

The assignments are really fun and put the videos into practice very efficiently! The only thing that troubles me is sometimes the "design language" is too unfamiliar for beginners.

Awesome course, great content! I wish there were more videos to learn about compositions and the third assignment was a bit hard to follow. Overall I learned a great deal. Thanks!

I found this course to be much more experimentation then anything else. I definitely learned some about composition, but I wish it would've been more focused on layout.

Nice class introducing the ideas of scale, composition and use of white/negative space. A must for people who always want to fill the page. Sometimes less is more.

This course really got my creative juices flowing. The assignments, however, lacked structure or a certain level of technical proficiency that I was expecting.
By Maya R•
Really liked the course, because it is very oriented to practical work. It would be great if there was more substantial exchange with other learners though.

Quite engaging, I improved my knowledge of Illustrator thanks to the assignments, but I think a few lesson videos are too few/short, especially in the end.
By Kelly J•
This course was a fun one that encouraged experimentation and making a lot of images. I would say the assignments could have been more challenging though.
By Anastasia O•
I learned a lot about imagemaking but I wasn't sure what the point was about making a book. It was fun but I felt "bookmaking" should be another class.

Very enjoyable and encouraging course - I haven't used watercolours since I was a child and this course prompted me to go back out and try them again!
Quite a free and open guide which kind of minimises it as a tutorial. However it shows how iteration and alternative methods can help with creation.

This course is very good for beginners of using images and need to know how to set images together and anyone did not studied graphic design before

It's a good course that introduce me to art and design. Anyway, it take a lot of time and might not suit for who didn't have basic in art.
I felt like standalone course its probably good, but as a part of specialization it is a bit repetitive of the design introduction course
By Chimdiebere A•
The course was a very enlightening one. I liked every bit it. I would like it if the course could cover digital image making in details.
By Seung H L•
I did not like how less people contribute to the course.. some people neglect the comment and don't read some comment about the artwork.
By Mihaela-Lucia M•
great course for learning and practicing your skills. I gave 4 stars because some of the assignments were unclear and a bit confusing.
By Anita G•
i really enjoyed the course, however more insight in imagemaking would be great. Some assignments also were a little confusing
By Nannie A•
This course teach you to think out of the box and if you have the courage and try, you will take it for the rest of your life.
By Hibah D•
The course is incredible, it gives a wide range of options to execute the assignments beautifully! I learned a lot
By Jelome C•
I liked how there's such an open approach to the course and it gave me a lot of chances to practice design.
By Kelly L•
I wish there was more lessons on specific creative techniques. Otherwise good class. Well worth the time!
By Beverley H•
Really enjoyed the challenges it made me face with designing my own booklet.Has inspired me to do more.
By Justyna B•
Great course and quite heavy on the assignment part. Nevertheless, this is where true learning starts.

Good introduction to important workflow concepts for creating and designing publications from scratch
