Mary refined those skills even more at George Brown University in Toronto where she received an advanced Diploma in Digital Design. Since then, Mary has co-founded 2 design companies, completed dozens of creative executions in interactive and graphic design, illustration, branding, web development and ideation and returned to George Brown to teach Design as well.
