In just a couple of weeks we’ll be hosting our second coco+kelley workshop here in Seattle, and I’m pretty darn excited about it. The design team who helped me put together this blog – CooperHouse – is coming to teach a two-day course for small businesses who need a little extra help in the graphic design department. And, just so there’s no confusion on how amazing and awesome this could be for you and your own biz – they put together this amazing infographic to spell it all out…
Here’s what your fearless workshop leader, Erin Cooper, has to say about the class:
“When a small business invests in a website and a brand, they may not always have the funds to hire a designer long-term to help reinforce the brand. Lots of businesses DIY their design for promotions, and we believe that teaching them the right way to design, and giving them the tools they need, will help eliminate poor layouts, ineffective visuals, and embarrassing mistakes. Learning to be a professional graphic designer does take years and years, but the fundamentals necessary to learn basic promotional design using Photoshop & Illustrator can be taught in a workshop, especially if the student is diligent with practice.
Ultimately, our goal is to reach out to our community and offer something that could have an immediate effect on the success of these small businesses, and empower non-designers to create visual messages that are effective & help elevate their brand.”
