Your brand is the heart of your business, but it can be overwhelming for any small business owner to know where to start. Do any of these sound familiar?

You’ve got a brand, but your design doesn’t represent your business the way you want it to

You’ve tried your hand at designing your own branding, but nothing comes out quite “right”

Your current design doesn’t speak to your ideal customers, or showcase your personality properly

 

You know you need a beautiful brand to stand out from the crowd, but you don’t want to settle for less just because you’re not quite ready to hire a hotshot designer

You’re ready to turn all of those “inspiration” boards into something tangible for your business

FAQs

+ 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 hello@gattoweb.com

+ How long does the class take?

The class is totally self-paced which means you can work on it whenever you have the time and go as quick or slow as you like. Past student of the class took between 4 weeks and a few months to work through all the content and in the class, you also get a pacer worksheet that can help guide you through the class depending on what time you have available.

+ Do I need anything before I get started?

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 any past live videos and help articles from past students.

+ Are there any live calls included?

The first version of the class was a live class so there are pre-recorded live videos available from this round. You get full access to these and any future live calls which may take place in the class Facebook group.

+ When does the class start?

This class is evergreen which means it is available whenever you want it to be! You can get started when you need and pace yourself depending on the time you have.

+ 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.

+ Do you need to use any design programme in particular?

The class is made so you can work through it with any design programme you prefer. This includes paid software like Photoshop or free online tools such as Canva. There is a lesson in the class to help you decide which is best for you!
