"Chad was a great mentor throughout the entire course. He was very fast in making comments to my submissions, allowing me to submit multiple versions to each projects. The comments were always very helpful in improving my skills, wether they were comments about design or about techniques and softwares tools I could use. He really helped me get a better understanding of the design industry and suggested many sources I could use to develop my skills. The skype sessions were always friendly and informative. He also was very flexible with the schedule and available at all times. Chad definitely got me even more interested into the world of design and I am now pretty sure I will be switching careers towards this new terrific job. Thanks a lot for your help Chad!"

"Having Chad as my mentor made this course so enjoyable. I learned so much from the feedback that he gave me throughout each assignment. He also offered to have additional Skype sessions with me if I needed any more guidance with assignments and sent me links to outside resources not provided through the course. It was such a pleasure to have such a great mentor, and it definitely makes me want to take more courses through Designlab."
