DA Workshop, Christchurch – Photograph and promote your design work

The Art of Self Promotion

While talent and hard work are essential for success, they can be entirely overseen without adequate self-promotion skills. Graphic Design has become an increasingly popular career choice for young creative people. It is a rapidly changing industry propelled by advancements in technology and new communication trends. Sharing your work without becoming human spam can be a delicate balancing act, but is increasingly important in age of digital communication where employers are adopting new online tools to discover talent.

This practical workshop targets final year students, graduates or anyone eager to have their portfolio professionally photographed and presented online. Attendees will bring along at least one physical piece of work they would like documented. We will explore styling and photo editing techniques to produce compelling images while touching on strategies to effectively use social media to share your work and create genuine interest.
