Very happy with how much I've learned from not just the lessons, feedback and QnAs but also from everyone else's work. HUGE thanks to Dzu for being so patient and encouraging and for all the guidance, especially the things that weren't covered in-depth in the video lessons. Been a very challenging and fun term!

His Feedback was great, it really helped me to understand key concepts of the perspective system, and I will use these skills for the rest of my life.  

Sean H., Student

Dzu was really helpful in live Q&As because he would give us more concise direction about ways of thinking and designing, rather than just doing demos (although he did demos as well, which were helpful).
