Professional Design

Professional Design Workshops

Software training is ideal for maximising the power of your software, but at the end of the day, software is just a tool, like the humble pencil. Having it and using it does not make a person a designer, but a computer operator. That's where our design courses come in … Delivered by design professionals, our design workshops serve to heighten our clients' aesthetic awareness using design, marketing and psychological principles. Think of them as design college modules. Combined with the software we teach, they make for very powerful design solutions.

NEED A MIX? WE CAN CREATE: A TOTALLY CUSTOMISED COURSE; OR MIX THIS MODULE WITH A SOFTWARE COURSE IN ONE OF OUR WORKSHOP COMBOS. WHATEVER BLEND YOU WANT, YOU'VE GOT IT.
