What People are Saying About Our Programs

I really enjoyed having a hands on experience and working with a client. 

Kristy Papay

Thanks to Zesty.  I learned a lot-- both to create a website and to meet the needs of a client.  This will help me a lot in the future.  Thank you for your help!

Great experience. Very helpful assistance, and extremely fun project.  I enjoyed looking at web design from a marketing standpoint.  I feel like this is a good experience for future endeavors.  

Michael Kennedy

It was a very useful experience; I study marketing so getting the whole webpage creating was interesting and productive.  It was also interesting to see how an actual website company works and to work hand-by-hand with the creators and programmers.  I think maybe having more layouts/templates would be amazing. 

Amanda Guggenbuehl

Having used other web editors like Webs I really appreciate Zesty's ability to not only fill in templates but to also customize the templates themselves.  I would recommend Zesty to other web designers who are just starting out like myself.  

Grayson Graham

At first I was worried about this project because I have no website experience.  I was surprised how easy and user-friendly the Zesty program was.  Each time I added or updated a page I was learning more and more about how to manage a website.  Overall, this project was one of the best things I did all semester.

Kyle Carruthers
Zesty Incubator Student

I think this was a great experience.  Learning how to design and develop a website is a great skill to have.  The experience of working with a real client was a great learning experience because it was more than an academic project.  It was a real life experience.
