A trio of creatives are hosting an event about how to take businesses to the next level for entrepreneurs, small business owners and marketers on July 13 at Propeller.
Get Creatives: How Communication Design Builds Your Bottom Line will share the combined impact of quality design, photography and copywriting, which together are called communication design. The session is also for people wanting to know what creatives do, where to find them, and what you should pay them.
“Simply put, communication design means more than just a pretty face for your business–it actually affects your bottom line.” Get Creatives organizers believe that communication design can impact not just the impression your business makes, but also profit.
Organizers say the hour-long session will be smart, funny and packed with information. The session will cover:
- How to assess your design, photography, and copywriting needs according to your niche and budget
- How to find and vet reliable “creatives”
- And how to forge a dynamic creative team to take your business to the next level
