Second Hely Costa Junior, coordinator of Estácio’s Graphic Design course, rated 5 by MEC, “the initiative is important so that Estácio students and design lovers, in the first place, have direct contact with a creative like Dan Katcher, it is the dream of everyone who works in the area and is passionate not only for design and creation, but mostly for pop culture! It is the chance to be able to discover the techniques, tools and unveil the creative process behind such iconic characters created by him. In addition, one of our biggest concerns in the graphic design course is to show students that the job possibilities and areas of expertise are huge and diverse“. According to him, the workshop is a great action in the sense of expanding the students’ possibilities of action and preparing them for the job market.
