Event Details

  WHY PHOTOSHOP?

No matter what stage you’re at when it comes to developing your technical skills, you’ve probably realized that Microsoft Paint just isn’t going to cut it forever. Whether you need to crop or resize a photo, want to create a logo for your blog, or have a more significant design project in mind, at some point, you’re going to need an introduction to Photoshop. 

At this full-day workshop, you’ll learn to use Photoshop and a bit of Illustrator (plus as much design theory as we can reasonably fit in).

About Your Project

As you may know by now, all Ladies Learning Code workshops revolve around a project, and this workshop is no different. At the end of the day, you will have created your very own personal brand package & mood board. Your end product will include: edited profile photos for Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn, a Twitter or website background, and a unique Facebook cover photo.  Plus, based on images that you’ll select and bring with you to the workshop (that you’ll source from sites like Piccsy & Pinterest, or Google Images), you’ll choose colours and fonts that represent your personal brand, with help from designers who really understand what makes for good choices, and can explain the “why” behind them. For those who are interested, you'll also have free time with which you can work on any of the projects you start during the day, or you'll be able to work on a project you come up with on your own.

 

This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about design, you’ve come to the right place! You must have Photoshop and Illustrator installed on your laptop, though! (a trial version is fine, or you can “rent” Photoshop and Illustrator for a month for about $75 - learn more here)
