    Taarik Pondor Mauritius It is a well planned course with excellent modules. In fact there should be an assignment on "drawing" where the student can upload his work either by pdf or word document. Still I had fun doing the course. 2016-07-27 13:07:09
  • Tonderai Walter Bhanisi
    Tonderai Walter Bhanisi South Africa Graphic design- is a problem solving field and or trade and at the same time one is always coming up with something new, transformation and modification it is so morden. Visual and graphic course is a brain storming subjects. Helps in flexibility of the brains, one's mind is always at easy because the brains will always create solution which is problem solving. So I think this subject is always producing a reinforced foundation and the end user is every time guaranteed and or resourceful enough. All this means one who study graphic design with Alison is a tool in need. 2016-07-27 10:07:14
