"My skills as a designer and a member of a team grew tremendously, as did my communication skills and confidence. Experimentation, creativity, and boldness were always encouraged, and constructive criticism was helpful and only allowed me to grow and learn more. My time at CCP has been eye-opening in that I have left with a more definite idea of what career path I wish to pursue, and a greater understanding of the inner-workings of creative companies and industries."
