Super amazing class, I really enjoyed it! I looked forward to all the projects and spent a lot of time on them because I thought they were so fun!

Professor Guan did an amazing job of teaching us this semester, especially during these times. She teaches very diligently and is very understanding about her students’ situations and experiences. Whoever has her class next semester will be glad they get to learn under her guidance.

Cannot say enough great things about Stella. All feedback I’ve received has been extremely constructive, and the time taken in each class to answer any miscellaneous questions that I or my classmates have is invaluable. Stella is an incredible instructor and I would definitely recommend her to anyone considering pursuing graphic design as a career.
