When I was Content Development Manager for the Design Community at F+W Media (HOW), I worked primarily with our online education brands. In early 2012, I was searching for a strong course developer/instructor for HOW Design University on the
topic of design and business, and found Douglas on LinkedIn. He certainly had the credentials I was looking for, but what I found after speaking with him and hiring him to develop a course, was that he also has a very high level of integrity in his work. I was impressed with the course that Douglas developed, which we called Creative Strategy
and the Business of Design. But when we launched the course, what impressed me most was Douglas's commitment to his students. They really benefited from the interactions they had with him, and I knew I could always rely on him to serve as a strong guide for students so that they could walk away with the kind of business understanding the course was designed to provide.

I took Douglas's course, "Creative Strategy and the Business of Design," in the summer of 2012. I found it to be a very valuable experience; it really expanded my understanding of the advertising industry and the many business considerations that go along with
creative work. As a junior designer, I was less than six months into my first agency position when I took this course, and I hadn't had much opportunity to see the marketing side of the industry I was working in. This course really opened my eyes. I believe the knowledge I gained from this course has already helped me to become a better
designer, and it will certainly help me to further my career in the future.

I recently took the 'Creative Strategy and the Business of Design' through HOW University, where Douglas was the professor. His knowledge and guidance throughout the course was critical to my success and application of the subject matter. He does not simply correct your work, but provides feedback and 'did you think about it this way' because he wants you to succeed and be able to apply your newly found knowledge in your workplace. Douglas is top notch and I also highly recommend this course for designers looking to gain a better grasp of who they are designing for within their organization.
