“After taking the course, I feel much more confident to take on InDesign. My vision as an entrepreneur is so much more clear – I can create anything myself rather than relaying that to graphic designers! In our new climate, I can see how great the investment is, now businesses are more pressured to outsource less and try to innovate & create internally.
