“Ryan was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was easy to plug-in to our working style and was very flexible.”

Kevin Michaels

Account Manager, Creative Marketing Resources

“This is the first time that we’ve used C2, and this is really such a nifty business operation! I just love how it’s worked. And E., the web designer you connected us to, couldn’t have been better! He pulled all-nighters to keep us on schedule and still sounded chipper and cheery after editing through the wee hours in order to launch our little site. He’s just fantastic.”

Corey Zetts

Associate Director, Menomonee Valley Partners, Inc.

“Gabe has an easy-going style that I think put my staff at ease.”

John Scheibel

Chief Executive Officer, Trefoil Group

“Good verbal and written communication, prompt and professional…Stephanie did a great job, sales was happy with the result.”

Heather Ancarrow

Creative Services Manager, National Business Furniture

Here, students learn to concept like agency pros, discover what job-winning portfolios look like and spend time with award-winning creatives. All of this and more in a six-week program that costs about half as much as just one college course hour.
