“Carolina was great at leaving timely and relevant feedback on my work. She was especially helpful in getting me to see typography related issues and to think about the project in terms of design systems. I would recommend her as a design mentor to anyone!”

- Lisa L, Design 101

- Adam S, UI Design

“Awesome! useful feedback and very accommodating.”

- Elizabeth L, UI Design

“I really enjoyed working with Carolina. There were days when I didn't have a clear sense of what I wanted to ask her (just a sense that I needed mentorship and someone to help me learn). We always found topics to discuss. Thanks!”

- Emily Z, UI Design

“Carolina is a great mentor with a vast amount of experience/expertise in the field. She understood I was new to design and helped me learn as much as I could in the time allotted. Our weekly meetings were insightful and any questions I had were answered. Carolina also challenged me to think about certain aspects of my design (and other designs) the way a designer would think. One thing I appreciated was her approach, although I was new she kept a high standard to my work which was I enjoyed. Because I would hate to have a mentor tell me bad design was good to make me feel like I'm learning. All feedback was critical to my learning and I'm thankful for the weekly meetings we had.”

- Kevin S, Design 101

“She's great! good topics and good feedback. I would like a little more professional perspective rather than academic, though”

- Douglas H, Design 101

“Carolina was great. While I found i struggled a bit on the direction of the program, my mentor sessions always left me feeling 10x more confident in approaching each one. Carolina gave me some great suggestions and I feel like I have a much better grasp on where to go from here regarding my design path.”

- David B, Design 101

“Got great feedback and advice”

- Saihaz A, Design 101

“ My weekly chats with Carolina were the highlight of my Design 101 experience. I am coming into this area as a total newbie and she is a font of knowledge on all things design - I learned so much about the history of design and gained so much insight into current industry best practices because of her. Her feedback was helpful and reflected a good understanding of where I'm coming from and how I'm trying to develop, and overall she just added to my curiosity and appreciation of the practice of design. I really hope to have the chance to engage with her more as I develop my design skills, and would highly recommend her as a mentor.”

- Marcelyn T, Design 101

“The mento ship with Carolina was great. If i ask her question and any feedback she gaives me straight away.

- Kimi , Design 101

Her responses to my questions and her advice are thoughtful and insightful, backed by years of experience and a deep knowledge of design and UX. ”

- Marcy R, UX Research & Strategy

“It was again really nice and helpful to have Carolina as a mentor. She gave me really precise and meaningful feedback to help me improve the quality of my projects. Always patient and enthousisatic about my ideas, she is a great mentor. I loved the Typography course. The lectures and lessons are really interesting and rich in relevant information to help achieve quality projects. I have learned so much and now feel much more confident about using typography in a way that will benefit to my projects. Thank you for that amazing new course!”

- Pascale M, Typography

“Carolina was great! She was very easy to talk with and was wiling to help me on each project and with my many questions. I learned a lot form her. I feel fortunate to have had her as my mentor.”

- Joshua W, Typography

“Awesome mentor! She was so easy to talk to and made herself available around my schedule which most people don't do. I really enjoyed the times when I had a question about something and Carolina would not only just answer the question but gives some background or examples to make sure I completely understood. I learned a whole lot during my time with Carolina. I'm sad to see the class come to an end but excited for the next time we'll meet! ”
