The instructor of this class is talented, warm, and good natured. However, this is not geared to real real beginners. It’s great for beginners with some recognizable talent but moves to fast for the others. Luckily, the instructor is totally non- judgmental.
The teacher was very knowledgeable and delivered the information in an easy-to-understand format.
Please let me know if I can get a certificate of completion. Thank you!!
Fantastic class! Very thorough and informative. Instructor was knowledgeable and accessible.
I’m very happy I took this glass! It gave a great foundation of InDesign. The teacher was very good at timing out the class although sometimes other students with less computer skills knowledge did slow the lesson down a bit. The homework tasks were interesting and did a great job challenging and helping practice what we learned. Would highly recommend
David Arcos the instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and organized. He provided us with step by step guides and resource pdfs to take home after every class. I learned a lot from this class, enjoyed the fun homework assignments I could apply directly to my professional work and know it will help me move forward in my career. I highly recommend this class and this instructor. He and his teaching assistant Darkin will take the time to make sure everyone understands the basic skills of InDesign and feel like a rockstar after leaving the class. I enjoyed my experience so much that I wanted the class to go on and continue into InDesign 2..and will be taking more classes at FIT with David Arcos going forward.
I've taken two classes this semester with Mary Beth (Marketing Your Product to Boutiques, and Managing Money in a Small Enterprise). She is amazing, happy to answer students' questions, and very inspiring. I feel like I've learned so much. Highly recommended!!!
Really enjoyed taking this class. The instructor was wonderful, and I feel like I've learned a lot.
Great class if you are looking to launch a fashion based business and don’t know where to start or have started and need some additional guidance. The professor was very passionate and inspiring.
