No matter what stage you’re at when it comes to developing your technical skills, you’ve probably realized that Microsoft Paint just isn’t going to cut it forever. Whether you need to crop or resize a photo, want to create a logo for your blog, design a business card or have a more significant design project in mind, at some point, you’re going to need an introduction to the Adobe Creative Suite.
At this full-day workshop, you’ll learn to use Photoshop (plus as much design theory as we can reasonably fit in).
About Your Project
As you know by now, all Ladies Learning Code workshops revolve around a project, and this workshop is no different. At the end of the day, you will have created your very own personal brand package & mood board. Your end product will include: your own personal logo, business card design, edited profile photos for Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn, a Twitter or website background, and a unique Facebook cover photo. Plus, based on images that you’ll select and bring with you to the workshop (that you’ll source from sites like Piccsy & Pinterest, or Google Images), you’ll choose colours and fonts that represent your personal brand, with help from designers who really understand what makes for good choices, and can explain the “why” behind them.
Special Requirements: Bring your own laptop and power cord, download required software and learner material from your Eventbrite ticket confirmation email prior to the workshop. Sign-up, download, and install a free trial of Adobe Photoshop. (Note: Free trials are only for 7 days, so download closer to event date to avoid a cost).
