“I’m currently studying Fashion & Textile Design at university and had a sound understanding of both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. However, my work was fairly standard and I wasn’t exactly sure where to progress. During the time I spent with Erica, I found this was no longer an issue. I saw a huge improvement in my CAD work in Adobe Illustrator through her tutoring, where she was able to give me guidance on both programs. She gave me tips on different tools within the programs and advice on how to improve aspects of my work.
I’ve found not only is my work a better standard, but I’m able to produce things a lot faster due to more efficient methods. I’d wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to advance their CAD work, especially given her friendly nature, patience and willingness to teach others.”

“Erica is a great teacher. She provided step by step instructions and got me producing great results very quickly. I had completed numerous online and video tutorials for Adobe Illustrator but despite that I found it very frustrating and difficult to use. Erica made the software seem much more user friendly and picked up on details that I would have overlooked. She taught me good working practices to maximise efficiency and good standards.
She was very patient and where I struggled with multiple layers she went over things repeatedly until I grasped the procedures. She was also very supportive of my long term goals and provided good advice, feedback and insight into my ideas. She is very mature, approachable, helpful and paid good attention to detail. She kept an eye on time to make sure I got the results I wanted out of the course. I would recommend her and Creative Studios to anyone.”
