SESSION 1: 10.30am – 1.00pm


Whether through websites, business cards and/or other media, the way we present ourselves (our brand) to our clients and potential clients is important if we want to create a distinct, memorable and professional image.

However, you don’t have to spend a lot of money or be a creative genius to build your brand. This session includes:

  • What is branding and why it is important to individuals
  • Methods that you can use to build your brand
  • Basic design tips on how to make your brand consistent and contemporary
  • A look at what you’ve got now and how to improve it.

Tutor: David Woods, Creative Director, surgerycreations

SESSION 2: 2pm – 4.30pm


If you want to increase your web presence to raise awareness of who you are and what you do, blogging can be an effective way of getting seen and heard.

This session includes:

  • Why and how to market your work through blogging
  • Ensuring that your blog meets your objectives
  • Tips on gripping content creation, blogging platforms and building your blog audience.

Tutor: Miranda Gavin

NOTE: There will be a pre-course exercise posted as a discussion on the FEU Facebook page to allow the tutor to assess participants' knowledge of, and familiarity with, using blogging software.
