About the Instructor
I am an inspired designer.;a powerful marketer.;a dedicated instructor.
My job is to help you become the best graphic designer you can be
Hi, my name is Chaya Murik and I started my career by publishing a coloring book when I was ten years old. We all start somewhere, right? Since then I have focused on building my career by studying design and marketing at the Manchester College of Arts and Technology and even achieved one of the top 5 marks in the UK. I recently finished my MBA with a Marketing concentration. I then went on to convince the staff at Oorah to give me a shot and I quickly rose to become a Senior Graphic Designer in their marketing department.
Nowadays I love to teach all aspects of graphic design. Coaching my students and making them the best designers they can be is my passion and many of them leave my courses and go on to create full designing careers of their own.
In addition to learning, teaching and eating copious amounts of watermelon and raspberry Jelly Bellies, I also design magazines, logos and other print media from my home studio.
“Chaya is so clearly amazing at what she does. The course was great and I really came out with a great knowledge of the programs. My favorite part about having Chaya as a teacher was her willingness to be so helpful and available. If I had any questions, even after the course was over, she would respond so graciously to my emails”
“Chaya positively inspired us to think creatively and out of the box when it came to finding a good concept for whatever design we were working on, she didn’t settle for mediocre results.”
“The course is short, yet covers an amazing amount of design and marketing principles, as well as giving a good working knowledge of the design programs used. Not only that, but Chaya remains available long after the course is over, advising me on projects and my own branding and rebranding. This mentoring continues to contribute significantly to my skills and confidence as a graphic designer. I highly recommend this course! “
