elements of the day

branding

Lucie will be working on the branding element of the workshop, initially delving into some brand psychology and why it’s important for small businesses.

We’ll then look at how to use your existing brand elements – logos, colour palettes and templates to develop a suite of assets you go to continually re-enforce your brand.

We’ll suggest which apps, methods and software there is available to you to make doing all of that easier & more professional looking.

Lastly the afternoon practical session is showing you how to create beautiful looking posts with tips, tricks & ‘a-ha’ moments with a hands on small group working environment. Leaving you with the inspiration and confidence to then go ahead and continue creating this for yourself.

photography

Highly experienced & super talented Professional Photographer, Charlie Alexander from Farlie Photography, will be talking to us about the importance of professional photography for our businesses. From branding shoots, to product photography- we’ll be looking at how this elevates the visual appeal for a small business.

Within this section of the day, she’ll also work with us on how to take better photos with the phones & camera equipment we already have. There’ll be some insight on which apps/software and props you can use too.

The practical session will include small group working to take some DIY photos with your phone, flat lays, product shots etc. As well as the opportunity to have a headshot taken by Charlie for your stock image library.
