“Training course was amazing! I always use some visualisation techniques in my work, but I had never thought that digitalisation of drawing can be so easy and will looks amazing! I discover the whole universe with tools for infographics and presentation. It will help me in daily life and project-work. And after the Doodle-workshop I really inspired to improve my skills in this field. Come to my workshop in CGE, haha! Will wait for the second part of TC in June!”
