"Betsy is an exceptionally gifted designer and an even better teacher; I strongly recommend her without hesitation. Her communication skills are what sets her apart from others. She listens intently and helps her clients (in our case, Northwestern graduate students, alumni, and even me personally) understand the design process, get to the heart of their values and visual design needs, and then coaches them through the design process in a way that demystifies the technical components and gives them the language (and even skills) to be a true part of the process. It is one thing to have talent, it is certainly a different skill to be able to teach it to others. Betsy has created a course at Northwestern called "Creative Branding and Design" (a design course for non-designers) that is incredibly popular year after year. I am so very fortunate to work with such an amazing person and designer."
