“Another great class by Jane (Instructor). Jane is extremely knowledgeable and brings a wealth of knowledge to the class. ThinkBig is a premier training site. Very impressed with the company.” – Michael D. – Department of Defense
“The two-day InDesign Advanced training was awesome! I realized that what I thought I knew about the program was so minuscule compared to everything it can do. The instructor was fantastic–I learned so much. Great class!” – Loren M. EBA Engineering
“Over the past two weeks, I took both Advanced InDesign and Advanced Illustrator with this instructor. I was already familiar with each program, but learned many new tips and tricks that I know will be valuable in my day to day work as a Graphic Designer. These courses were extremely helpful and I hope to take more in the future!” – Rebecca O. – Department of Defense
