A Desire To Build A Higher Profile Client List
You have only seconds to prove that you are a capable and professional designer to an online audience.
Yeah.. so that part where you have to show your work in public, right?! NOT fun if you haven’t had some really great projects behind you, I know. I was there! I had a binder (yes, I’m old) of glossy printed projects I was sometimes thrilled and sometimes terrified to show anyone. Looking back, they were just plain awful and I wish someone had taken the time to go over with me what would have really made them shine.
Wouldn’t you want to do everything you can to secure that moment in time so you can line up your next paying gig?
No one wants to look like an amateur, especially in today’s cutthroat competition.
This class will help you:
- Save time on your own marketing
- Set you apart visually from your competition
- Rid your existing material from rookie mistakes that could be keeping you from getting more work
- Elevate your portfolio materials to pitch alongside the pros – with confidence!
If you’ve already taken my classes you know I talk fast, give you the TRUTH, and don’t waste your time with ten minutes of “intro” slides about my family, dogs, favorite color, and hard-luck stories. We WORK here, and my own 20+ year graphic design and illustration portfolio speak for itself.
So join me for another smash-and-grab designer productivity and professional growth class full of real-life experience and plenty of downloadable future reference handouts!
