The approach used in teaching by our instructor is really a great one, that allows everyone to be carried along, for some of us who have never designed before, we can say today after 10days that we can conveniently do a very nice design. I sincerely appreciate USADF, LSETF and everyone involved in making this training experience an amazing one for all of us.

This is a mind blowing, challenging program cos it has took my design skills to the next level. I now see designs from a break down point of view instead of one entity. It is really awesome and kudos to everyone involved in setting it up. Thank you

Olumoye Aduragbemi Designer/Freelancer

I just want to appreciate the organizers & sponsors of the Design school for the opportunity to be a part of the Design School 2021. I have been an entrepreneur with zero experience in the professional sector, I thought I might be able to cope but coming to Design school has made me aware of how far have come with my self-development. And now, I have moved from Zero-knowledge in Graphic designing to a 5 and still working on becoming better. A lot to be said but I will stop here. Thank you
