When you have the opportunity to look at a designer's book, talk with them, and realize they have the growing ability to finesse color and shape into a distinctive personality for a market, and then form truly abstract ideas into concrete materials that communicate a message successfully, then you know you have someone very special indeed in front of you. Carolann has been able to do that since Day 1.

I have to say it’s so great to have someone like you to rely on.
This was one of the best design classes I've ever taken. Very practical information and interesting assignments. Thank you.

The teamwork displayed by your department is top notch. Your ability to run the department is admirable. I have seen and heard you weather the storm, and take personal responsibility for your team. In my past fifteen years of experience in this field, I have never had a supervisor ask about stress levels, or display the level of concern for their teams’ well-being as you have. In those years I had thought I had learned all I would in a corporate setting. In the short time I have been here, you have taught me much about my own leadership skills. I couldn’t have asked for a better leader.
Being a beginner coming from the black and white world of science, I've learned so much and am becoming way more comfortable in the creative world of design thanks to Professor DeMatos and this class!
