Auckland: Project Management for Publications with Kitki Tong

Recommended for designers of all levels, Creative Directors, Account & Project Managers as well as those interested in self-publishing.

So what now? Publishing is usually an exciting ‘passion project’ and so unsurprisingly rarely gets the budget it needs making it a very expensive, long and at times painful process if the planning hasn’t be done right. This workshop is designed to help anyone who would like to dive deeper into the publishing world and avoid unnecessary pain.
