Here is a workshop for those of you who are setting up some of your own graphics and document layouts for your business but are not feeling confident with what you are creating or happy about the amount of time you spend doing it and would like some tips about how to achieve a consistent professional look.

We will be working with the free version of Canva on the day but will be learning techniques and guidelines that you can apply in any program you use to help you maintain a professional visual look for your business.Long term designer and trainer Kylie Findlay will run through 5 things she recommends for non-visual people to set up great looking branded visual files, using examples of how you can apply her tips to improve a layout, and then we will spend some time working on a design or template of your own.

This workshop will give you techniques you can follow time and time again to make creating graphics for your business quicker and more consistent. A basic understanding of Canva is expected.

Please bring along your laptop, wifi will be available on the day. We will be allocating time to work on your own designs so perhaps have a design or two you have created that you would like to improve on during the workshop.

Let’s take the stress out of your design time and make it easy and effective.

Lunch can be purchased from the Gallery Cafe. Please pre-order prior to the event start time so we can start on time. There is also a kitchenette with a sink and kettle if you wish to make yourself a cuppa. There will be a 30 minute break in the session.
