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

Fabulous class. Helpful for illustrators or letterers and pretty much anyone creating creative content to make a living. Most business courses for creative folks seem to gear towards people who have been further along their career path and it’s not helpful at all who those who have just started. If you are confident in your craft but don’t know where to start making a profit from your skills and you’re sick with useless advice like “Just get over your fear”, then Dina is the one to learn from.
— Trang Lee
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!
— Valerie Yee

Dina’s workshop was jam-packed with value bombs! I’ve been struggling with the marketing and communication side of my creative business and flailing around without a direction. This class just put everything into perspective. I started taking the suggestions from the class and it turns out I wasn’t believing in the value of my art! No wonder I wasn’t getting clients! There is so much information. Thanks, Dina! You’re a life-saver (business-saver)!
