Find Your Style Workshop
Ever wonder how you can make work that looks unlike anything you’ve seen before? Are you tired of seeing the same design trends? Feeling drenched in imposter syndrome trying to fit into a world of extremely talented creatives?
We all have the makings for a design, illustration, or fine art style unlike anyone else. After all, you’re unlike anyone else! In this hands-on workshop, Meg will walk through the exciting world of embracing the lifelong qualities that make you most unique. You’ll pinpoint lifelong points of inspiration and translate your wacky, totally “you” personality into a visual style unlike anyone else. By the end, you’ll define a design style that no one else in the world can have that’s a true reflection of who you are and what you have to offer.
In this workshop you’ll
- Identify your lifelong points of inspiration and translate them into a visual identity
- Define the attributes of your personality that make you unique and bring that personality into your work
