..But there is much more to design.
Microsoft Word and PowerPoint were not originally intended to be design tools while CANVA is the greatest technology tool available to individuals and business owners at this time BUT there is a limit to what these can achieve. Even the best designer would get average design results using these programs.
Good results need the right foundational knowledge and that is what we are providing in this program.
The Course consists of 3 Modules followed by a project, below is the course broken down:
My name is Abiola and designing is one of my super powers.
I started designing purely by accident. About 6 years ago, I teamed up with a few of my colleagues at work to start an agro business and there rose an urgent need to have a business name and logo.
It was an interesting number of days but we achieved our aim and I came up with a logo, wholly designed online, that encapsulated what we stood for as a company. Seeing what I did, another colleague started a food business and commissioned me to come up with a logo and package design.
Soon afterwards, a family friend began a cleaning business…then a group of alumni required graphics for a celebration…on and on it went. Needless to say that I’ve not looked back since.
All these I did without attending any design school but of course, there is a limit to what one can do without professional guidance. This prompted me to enrol in a top Brand Design Academy in 2017 for more knowledge.
You see, before then, I craved an online program and endlessly berated the Academy’s course registrar on why there was no program to cater for those unwilling or unable to drive down to the academy every weekend. I searched the whole of Lagos State at the time for any online design program, unfortunately, there was none so I ended up sometimes showing up in school with my children!
I resolved to solve this problem immediately I am done with my program but life happened.
But here we are.
