Resources for New Designers

“Molly’s expertise is invaluable. Her natural gift for mentoring and building confidence in young designers is something I’ve been so fortunate to experience first hand both in the classroom and post graduation. As college drew to an end, developing my résumé and portfolio, as well as finding a design job, were daunting tasks. Without fail, Molly provided excellent constructive criticism while always remaining professional and supportive through the countless draft revisions and questions. She helped me discern my strengths and eventually produce polished personal branding and portfolio pieces that resulted in a job. Each interaction with her is crucially beneficial, even now as I start out in my career, she continues to offer just the right encouragement and advice. Working with Molly is truly something to be treasured.”
