WHY ILLUSTRATION

Bring something new and fresh to the table with illustration.

You can provide tremendous value to clients and employers with your design skills alone. So why not take it up a notch with illustration? By the end of this workshop you’ll have created your own unique illustration, developed a meaningful process to produce more, and learned a few tips and techniques to keep creating along the way.

HOW TO START

Communicate complex or abstract ideas in a clear way.

With Illustration, you can communicate anything in an accessible way—without relying on stock images, photography, or language barriers. By creating your own process and style, there’s no limit to what your illustrations can do. The best part? You don’t need to know how to draw to join this workshop. You'll be drawing, yes, but all you need to dive in is an open mind.

Expand your design skillset and creative offerings to increase your value and capabilities as a creative professional.

Say goodbye to stock photos or clip art. With your own custom illustrations in hand, you’ll always have the right image to incorporate into any project.

Develop your own creative process to create impactful illustrations in an efficient way.

Broaden your visual communication skills with visually engaging illustrations.
