This free workshop will guide participants through the process of designing their own business cards. Discussion and activities will center around basic concepts of typography and graphic design, as participants collaborate and share feedback on custom designs. There will be a great deal of creative freedom to try different layouts within provided templates for horizontal and vertical cards, as well as with basic logo design. No materials or files are required but you are encouraged to bring high-quality digital files of logos or images that you may want to incorporate into your cards. Please bring a flash drive or have access to cloud storage, such as Google Drive, so that you can save your work. If you have a laptop with Photoshop, you are welcome to bring it, but computers will be available to share.
The workshop open to adults and teens. No experience is necessary. Register at the door. Space is limited.
