"I am very, very thankful that Francesca has been my mentor! She is very knowledgeable, quick to provide feedback, and her advice was always helpful. Not only the techniques and tips, she taught me "how better to think" as a designer. I really appreciate DesignLab and matched me with her. I have learnt so much and having her as my mentor was actually the best part :) THANK YOU! "
