How to embrace contemporary trends and create award winning experiences

Creative Days!     $100 $25

Contemporary trends can be a good servant but a bad master. Learn how to navigate through the ever-changing digital ecosystem and find out what to do when you plan to win some of those digital awards.

The role of Digital Designer is dramatically progressing every day and placing new demands. Learn how to be a “wholesome” Designer and all-in-one person, how to be your own curator and eventually get some positive recognition.

Get involved with various creative techniques such as illustration, photography, custom typography or video. We will dismantle my award-winning projects and basically create a checklist with all points so you don’t miss your chance to shine.
