"Having Angie as a teacher makes it so much easier. She has been patience itself, with both visits tailored to exactly what I need."
Around 18 months ago I decided to move away from my ‘Jack of all Trades’ role within marketing and try to specialise in the graphic design element of the role. I had found myself increasing involved and interested in briefing creatives, but without the skill to understand exactly how they came up with the end images/product or, how to start to produce them myself.
As soon as I installed Creative Cloud, I knew that I would need some help navigating the various packages (!) and was fortunate enough to find Angie’s website. As soon as we started emailing, I knew instinctively she would offer exactly the right sort of training for me!
This is now the second time I have visited Angie (7th/8th Dec 2016) at the Creative Cabin, and once again, it was a fantastic experience. Learning a new skill can be a daunting prospect but having Angie as a teacher makes it so much easier. She has been patience itself, with both visits tailored to exactly what I need.
The Creative Cabin is a quiet space where I am able to work at my pace, look at things as many times as I need to that won’t stick (Sorry Angie!!) and to progress and feel confident in what I am trying to attempt. I will undoubtedly, be back!
I’d gained valuable understanding and work flow experience that would have been difficult to get on broader training courses.
Training courses usually just touch on a range of subjects at introductory level and this approach can mean spending valuable training time covering subjects that you may already know or don’t need.
With Angie she really tailored the training to just the areas that I needed to focus on and adapted as we went along allowing me to really understand and not just skim over new techniques and approaches.
I left feeling I’d gained valuable understanding and work flow experience that would have been difficult to get on broader training course or at the work place. A Great couple of days.

We have placed Angie at top broadcast accounts, games companies and design agencies to establish the most effecient techniques
Angie is an amazing technical wizard for the post production community. We have placed Angie at top broadcast accounts, games companies and design agencies to establish the most effecient techniques to get from concept to completion with Adobe's Photoshop, Illustrator, AfterEffects, Flash, Premiere Pro and Encore DVD. Angie is also one of the few industry spokespersons that represents Adobe at large seminars and events. She is comfortable presenting to groups even a 1000 strong. Angie is quite personable and goes the extra mile to help any project she is part of to be excellent
Her books are joy to read, her presentations will inspire you and her work will move you
What can I say about Angie that has not been said already. I echo everything that people have said, and she is indeed a trusted industry legend! I've know Angie for 10 years so I can honestly say one of the best characteristics of Angie is that she loves to share her knowledge and talent with you, whereas most so called artists never reveal a thing. And this is what makes her a true Artist and Designer. Her books are joy to read, her presentations will inspire you and her work will move you. In my imaginary school of Creative superheroes, she would be my Creative Director

Its always worth investing in education and my visit to the Creative Cabin is paying off for me already.
I visited the Creative Cabin in December 2014 and spent two days learning After Effects with Angie Taylor. I have been using After effects for just over 5 years, in that time I had read lots of training books and used lots of online training resources and was at a point where I felt my work wasn’t really progressing. Then I heard about the bespoke training at Creative Cabin.
Before my visit I was able to discuss with Angie what I wanted to learn, showed her examples of work that inspired me and I wanted to be able to achieve a similar standard. Angie really covered every aspect and more, not only helping me improve my daily workflow but also a massive amount of tips and tricks that you don’t find an any books or you tube videos. This is where Angie’s experience really comes into its own, being able to ask questions on a one to one basis (and ask again when I didn’t quite understand), means my understanding of the motion design process and After Effects has greatly increased.
Additional to the time spent training with angie, the creative cabin has the added advantage that in the evening I could continue practising the aspects learnt during the day and new questions, which inevitably arrise, were answered the next day.
It was a very intensive two days, which I would highly recomend to everyone, Angie is a great trainer, really patient, and I think its great how she enjoys sharing her vast knowledege, and of course her very beautful home. And she’s a great cook! I recomend the meal options that Angie offers, not only does it save time (which can be spent after effecting) Angies currys taste great too!
So six months after my visit to the Creative Cabin, I have been asked to do a complete re-design of all the packaging for a daily show. I think this really is a sign that not only have I notice the improvements to my work but my Clients have too! Its always worth investing in education and my visit to the Creative Cabin is paying off for me already. Thanks Angie
Angie is consistently brilliant at what she does, she's reliable, professional and so so easy to get along with.
Angie is one of my all time favourite trainers. She's consistently brilliant at what she does, she's reliable, professional and so so easy to get along with. Whenever I work with Angie I can take it for granted she will exceed expectations. She's disappointed me once only when she told me she was no longer on the freelance market. So, I have no hesitation at all in recommending Angie.
Angie is able to communicate that knowledge to customers and colleagues with enthusiasm and confidence.
I have worked with Angie on a number of occasions and have always been impressed by her. Not only does she demonstrate a great knowledge of her subject but she is able to communicate that knowledge to customers and colleagues with enthusiasm and confidence. She works well with other team members and is liked and respected in equal measure. I would recommend her in an instant to any employer and hope to work with her again in the future.
Angie has a fantastic, engaging presence, whether demoing on-stage, or with customers, 1:1
Angie is truly the kind of colleague that you want to work alongside. She's a perfectionist, she delivers great work on-time, and on-schedule, and has a fantastic, engaging presence, whether demoing on-stage, or with customers, 1:1. She's a master of her craft, and it shows.
In her quiet moments Angie does the highest quality work and always with a smile.
Angie is a familiar sight at every trade show I attend around the globe, always presenting to a packed crowd, or maybe patiently explaining complex rotoscoping 1-to-1 with an enthusiastic user. In her quiet moments Angie does the highest quality work and always with a smile. Her hefty book on After Effects is respected as THE title and has helped thousands of beginners and experienced users alike. Truly a star who deserves five stars!?
Of all the After Effects books I looked at whilst trying to learn it, I found Angie’s was the most user friendly and creative.
Chris learned After Effects by reading Angie’s Creative After Effects book. Later they worked together on one of Chris’s music video projects for Aphex Twin. Here’s what Chris said about Angie’s method of teaching and writing.
