Basics of Branding for Small Creative Businesses
An effective, consistent identity is crucial to building brand recognition and adding value to your business. But where should small, creative businesses start?
Well, we think you should start with The Basics of Branding for Small Creative Businesses.
In this workshop and Q&A session, we'll take you through each brand element you need to beautifully represent you, your products and your business. From which file types to use, how to carry a brand across different print, web & social, to how to make your designer's job as easy as delicious pie.
What you'll get out of the Studio Cotton workshop
We'll take you through a branding checklist, explaining each element you need for your business, how to pick them and most importantly, why. We'll use worksheets, as well as simple single and group excercises, to get you thinking about immediate choices and changes you can make to improve your business.
And the end of the workshop, you should feel more comfortable about branding your small creative business. You'll also be able to take away any resources and worksheets used during the session.
Who's the workshop for?
This workshop has been developed for any freelance creative, maker, seller or small business owner. From artists and illustrators to jewellers, yoga teachers, florists and shop keepers and anything outside or inbetween.
It's perfect for creatives who are just starting on their brand journey, as well as those with some ideas or brand elements but wanting guidance on what to do next.
No previous knowledge or expertise is required.
About the venue
Studio Cotton is a lovely little marketing agency and small business studio in the centre of Bristol. Located on the top floor of a historic Bristol building, this intimate and casual venue is designed for maximum creativity, comfort and tea consumption.
Our studio is located on the third floor and unfortunately the building's elevator only travels as far as the second floor. There is a single flight of stairs so unfortunately we cannot provide step-free access.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Studio Cotton is located in the centre of Bristol and served by most public transport routes. Parking on the other hand is a little trickier.
There is limited Pay & Display parking available. The closest multi-story car parks are Queen Charlotte Street and The Galleries Shopping Centre, at the time of writing The Galleries Shopping Centre offers affordable parking after 5pm, but do check this before you make your journey.
What should I bring into the event?
All you'll need is a notepad and pen, although we encourage attendees to bring in some of their branded stationery and promotional materials. This session includes a 20-minute Q&A session where we can cover specific questions about your individual branding.
