Design secrets every marketing manager needs to know

Branding Workshop FEB 2022 - Evenbrite_2160x1080px (1)

Being a marketing manager usually means you’re a jack of all trades. And it’s challenging. You’re expected to be an expert in everything loosely marketing related, including graphic design. But when you don’t have the skills or education to know what makes a great design, your brand is missing out on the impact that comes with an inspiring design.

You might have the basic skills to use design software such as Photoshop, InDesign, or Canva, but without knowing the fundamentals of elements such as spacing, size, balance and texture, your designs lack the wow factor that attracts, engages and inspires your audience.

In this interactive workshop, our Head of Design and UX, Xixi Ma, will teach you the graphic design fundamentals that you need to know. Learn tips and tricks to create stunning designs that follow your brand guidelines and will leave your audience impressed. Learn how to make templates that will mean designing beautiful collateral is easy and quick, whilst staying on brand.

Who should attend?

If you are a marketing professional who doubles as a graphic designer (without the qualifications), looking to learn industry secrets to great design, this workshop is for you.
