We’ll explore the science and tech behind creating logos, advertisements, and business cards so that by the end of the series, you’ll be able to take anything and transform it into something people will buy!

Amaze-YUM Food Truck Designer You may have eaten at a food truck and thought to yourself- if I had a food truck, it’d be a _______ truck. Well, this is your chance to test out that idea!
