Workshop 1

How to run a damn good brand project.

We’re always being told about the power of brand, but rarely do we get the chance to find out how to go about creating one – from strategy, to creative and beyond.

Whether you’re doing it for yourself, your work, or for a client, running a brand project is hard. The path to success is full of hurdles, potholes and decoys that can stop you getting the result you’re after.

But it doesn’t have to be like that. Running a brand project can be a thoroughly interesting and highly rewarding experience. There is nothing more satisfying than launching a new brand to market and watching the amazing difference it can make.

Workshop 2

How to run a damn good website project.

Creating good websites is hard.

However, as a designer, marketer, project manager or business owner, knowing how to do it well can be an absolute game-changer.

Whether you’re making one for yourself, for your company or for a client, planning, designing and launching a new website can be a thoroughly interesting and highly rewarding experience. There is nothing more satisfying than having a website you made ‘go live’ and watching people from all over the world visit a tiny part of the internet that you created.

What’s even better is seeing the incredible impact a new website can have. From increasing sales or sign-ups to boosting performance or shifting perception – a damn good website can do it all and more. But the key to creating a damn good website, is running a damn good website project!
