Being a marketing manager usually means you’re a jack-of-all-trades. And it’s difficult. You are expected to be an expert in anything loosely related to marketing, including graphic design. But when you don’t have the skills or education to know what makes good design, your brand misses out on the impact of inspiring design.

You may have the basic skills to use design software like Photoshop, InDesign, or Canva, but without knowing the fundamentals of things like 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 you need to know. Learn tips and tricks for creating stunning designs that follow your brand guidelines and wow your audience. Learn how to create templates that mean designing beautiful media is quick and easy, while staying on-brand.

Who should be present?

If you’re a marketing professional who doubles as a graphic designer (minus the qualifications) looking to learn the industry secrets to great design, this workshop is for you.
