Your Instructor


About your Instructor Betty Hurd: Having spent more than a decade implementing training software technologies into fashion projects from design to marketing to retailing, I have worked extensively with designers and marketers. Over the years there became apparent a common issue: software training resources do not work well together in one place, greatly complicating the completion of the project. Snapfashun solves this problem, thereby reducing errors and increasing productivity so you can bring your design or product to market with greater ease. This training will benefit company design employees, freelance designers, fashion design students and anyone else looking to learn or improve their fashion designs with Adobe Illustrator. Betty holds a bachelor's degree in consumer science/retail and a master's degree in Adult Education, both from the University of Wisconsin, as well as a certificate in social media. She is currently Program Director of Fashion Marketing at Madison College in Madison, Wisconsin.
