    Corey Fields United States of America This course was very helpful in getting a taste of graphic design and duties required to work in the field. I would recommend this to anyone looking to work in graphic design. My only complaint is the lack of any actual assignments. There should be exercises to demonstrate the usage of the different elements and principles. 2015-03-13 13:03:50
