Hey I’m Cat!
I have been creating personal and purposeful branding for clients for the past five years and now I want to pass that on to you. I want to teach you all about brand research and design so you can have the power to design a killer brand identity and the knowledge to have your own designer on your team…
and that designer is you!
+ Who is this class for?
Be Your Own Designer is for anyone who runs a business and wants to be able to create their own designs with confidence and ease.
+ I am a designer, can I do this?
If you already have expertise with branding design, you may already be clued up with the class content but if you want to learn about a more in depth process, you could get involved! If you're not sure, feel free to ask me any questions at email@example.com
+ How long does the class take?
The live class takes part over a six week period but you will have lifetime access to the course material and Facebook group so if you don't have enough time, you can do it at your own pace. I would just recommend that you get involved in the live calls!
+ Do I need anything before we start?
Everything you need will be included in the six week period but you may want to have a look at the Welcome module, get to grips with the teaching platform and choose a design programme to use.
+ I already have a brand design, will this be a waste of time?
A chunk of the class is how to create a brand design (logo, colour palette etc.) so if you have a brand design you are totally happy with then this is not for you. However, if your brand doesn't quite feel right or you want to make some tweaks to help it connect with your business better, you can still follow the class without starting from scratch.
+ How long do I have access?
You will have lifetime access to the class materials and Facebook group to re-watch the live videos. Throughout the six weeks, you will get one module to work on per week to keep on track.
+ What happens on the live calls?
We will have one live call a week in which you can ask any questions you have about the classes and material from that week. You will also get the chance to get any design feedback and support from me.
+ When does the class start?
The class will start on Monday 4th March and you will get access to the group and the first class on that day.
+ What will I have at the end of the class?
At a minimum, you will have a personal, purposeful AND beautiful basic brand design (including a mood board, logo, alternative logo designs, colour palette and font system). If you manage to complete the class, you can also extend your brand to collateral items and a perfectly branded website.
+ What if I can't make the live calls?
All live calls will be available to watch on repeat and you will also get a chance to ask any questions before the call so I can make sure all your queries are answered!
