Kind Words

MAD Studio worked with us on a recent graphic design campaign. They came into the office and were briefed like creative professionals on the project. The work they produced was fresh and high-quality. The students got to have some real world design experience and we got their fresh take on our campaign ideas! This was definitely a win/win for everyone.”

I’m just MAD about the MAD academy! I had a lengthy video for a nationwide corporation that needed editing on short notice for a critical press release. The video team did a stellar job. They got it done on time, the first time. I will definitely be directing more work to the MAD Studio!”

For so many reasons, working with the MAD Studio was a wonderful experience. Working with dedicated and determined students, they helped create a final project exactly what my client had envisioned. It delighted me to see them apply themselves to the assignment, do the research, and learn and grow, making my vision come to life.

I worked with the students at MAD Studio on animation and several video projects that were used in presentations for a local research film ending in complete success. Showcasing their professionalism, the students were able to handle the manner of this fully confidential project. I look forward to the next project I send their way!”
