Creating Effective Marketing Collaterals (Full Online)

A quick look on the basics of letterhead, business card, banner, flyer and brochure design, from media types and sizes, to the preparation of materials and text for layout, and the proper use of grids, white space, and fonts. The workshop involves producing layouts from scratch, with focus on proper material preparation and placement, and creating several studies from a creative brief.

Rather than creating a generic designs, the professional graphic designer is expected to create a design that is not only different but also appropriate for the company’s personality and business. This requires sympathy with the client, knowledge of the logo and its proper use, knowledge of the company’s audiences (clients, suppliers, and business affiliations) and familiarity with the vast array of design possibilities for business stationery.

Method of Teaching

This course provides live instructor-led demonstration and discussions, student engagement and on-the-spot hands on exercises using Zoom, Google Classroom and Adobe Illustrator CC (or CorelDRAW), Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Photoshop.
