Dina’s class on freelancing was amazing! Extremely insightful and jam packed with tips and information that any maker, illustrator, and designer should know. Dina was articulate and knowledgeable. She was lighthearted and funny but still very educational and informative. I would love to take another class with her!
— Monica J. Chhugani
Wow. There was just so much information I never even knew I needed. Dina knows so much about everything and explains it so well, in context, and at a level that beginning freelancers/pre-freelancers can understand. I definitely learned a lot and will take this information with me to develop my lettering career!
