Webinar: 'Using a smartphone to shoot video'

Who is this aimed at: Everyone.

Description: Video will make up 82 percent of all internet traffic in 2021, according to forecasts released by tech giant Cisco. That compares with 73 percent of traffic in 2016.

If you're not already making video to support your social media posts and campaigns, then you need to get shooting.

Webinar: 'Design that works'

When: Wednesday 7th November 12:00 – 13:00 GMT

Who is this aimed at: Everyone.

Description: Giving a professional polish to your designs for posters, publications, adverts and websites is a real skill. Making them stand out in a crowded market place is vital. If your designs need some help, join us and sharpen your skills.

We will examine the fundamental importance of hierarchy, explore the diverse ‘voices’ of fonts and their impact on audiences and the value of harnessing the power of grids and columns in your layout.

The webinar will focus of design principles and is not about which software package to use.
