+ What is the benefit of attending the workshop?
Sometimes a traditional design process can take a long time to complete because of missing content, loose deadlines, busy schedules, or late revision feedback. With a full day booked on your calendar, it's guaranteed that you will get this website LIVE! Also, working one-on-one in person is so much more efficient than working over email.
+ Who is this for?
Anyone who has a business, wants to start a blog or online magazine, needs a portfolio site, is offering freelance/consulting services or is on the Communications team of a business/organization.
+ Where is the workshop offered?
We can offer the workshop anywhere in Virginia, Washington DC or arrange to come to you at other locations- just ask!
+ Do I need to have a logo before the workshop?
Yes! If you would like a logo designed before you get to the workshop, we have this service available as an add-on service.
+ Does my site have to be on Squarespace?
Yes. This particular workshop is exclusively for Squarespace so it's important that your site is setup on this platform.
+ Are there incentives for referring a friend?
Yes! You will receive $50 off of your registration if your friend registers and attends the same workshop with you! The discount will be taken off of your final payment. Only one discount per 2 people. Group discounts for nonprofits also available. Email us to set this up.
+ What do I need to bring to the workshop?
- Your laptop (preferably Mac) with an up to date browser installed (Firefox or Chrome)
- Completed homework
- Your logo, (and brand board with fonts & colors, etc.),
- 20-30 images to use on the site
