Moniack Mhor Weekend Residential – Visual Brand Identity
25th – 27th August 2023
Tutor: Elly Lucas
Let’s talk about…Visual Brand Identity?
“But Elly,” you might say, “why on earth do I need to think about this? Isn’t the music enough?!” The short answer is: unfortunately not.
In a world where your potential audience is being bombarded with new content during every waking hour, there are a few things which will make you stand out amongst everything else – and high on that list are the visuals you use to represent yourself and your work.
During this workshop I’ll share the skills I have developed over the course of my career which will enable you to create authentic and meaningful visuals. We’ll discuss how to represent both your personality and creativity, and learn what the key points to consider are when choosing creative collaborators. By the end of the weekend, not only will you find yourself equipped with new knowledge and skills, but you’ll have a couple of professional headshots to start you on your way too. Neat eh?
