This course is designed and delivered by women and that is so affirming for women students and I think is pivotal to helping women find their own voices. The depth and breadth of material is amazing and so many excellent resources are offered. The course continues to evolve and change and just gets better and better. The Design Studio is an excellent idea and anyone who is new to design or has been doing design will benefit from working through it. That in depth look and step-by-step process makes this course stand out from others. It clearly demonstrates that design is a step-by-step, yet creative process, as well as an ongoing process. I can trust that process and just dive into it. It affirmed for me that I can do this, in fact have been doing it. Sometimes I need to be reminded.
