Kerstin Upmeyer is the Illustrator Queen. Her classes were always so much fun and we were able to utilize alot of our freshly learned skills during her lab hours. Not only did she teach us basic design principles but her tutorials were so enriching. She taught us several different ways to produce the same final product. I fell in love with product packaging during her classes. To design and create something digitally then still use you hands to assemble the final piece was a blast. The milk carton project was my favorite. I still remember our field trip to Hillsborough printing where we got to see hands on everything she taught us about pre-press. That was such a great experience. Kerstin introduced me to making hand made pop up cards. I’ve made so many cards since and its so much fun. Thanks Kerstin!
