Good morning friends, & happy Wednesday! It SNOWED this week. That’s right… So, it seems fitting that we should be doing something that is a very rare occurrence around these parts, and that is a GIVEAWAY. We are excited to give an opportunity to a local small business that could potentially change the trajectory of their success in a big way.
We are giving away (1) ticket to our OKC Digital Creative Workshop (a $500 value) AND (1) CooperHouse brand consult session (a $150 value). This prize includes: Examining & assessing your existing brand & website, discussing your goals, a little brand brainstorming, and creating a plan to execute as you move forward with your new skills that you acquire at our 2-day graphic design workshop.
CooperHouse is hosting the Digital Creative workshop May 30th & 31st in Oklahoma City, and is geared towards small businesses, artists, and bloggers. This workshop will teach Photoshop, Illustrator and basic graphic design techniques specifically for online marketing & promotion. The emphasis will be in creating beautiful design, elevating your brand, maintaining continuity, and teaching you the skills to take control of your visual content.
Our workshop will teach basic technical graphic design skills and design fundamentals. We want you to learn how to use the tools, and then learn how to use them to create good products specifically intended for your business. This workshop will give you working knowledge of Photoshop & Illustrator, even if you’ve never tried using these programs before. The CooperHouse Digital Creative Workshop will be a 2 day course, held on Friday, May 30th and Saturday, May 31st from 8-5 pm. The class will be held in Oklahoma City in Dunlap Codding on Film Row event space in downtown OKC.
Why are we hosting this workshop?
At CooperHouse, we work primarily with small businesses and we feel that this unique demographic is often at a disadvantage when it comes to creating visual content for their websites & social media feeds.
When a small business invests in a website & 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.
Here’s a look at some of the information we’ll be covering in our workshop:
