Workshops

Takeaways you can put into practice immediately.

In our experience as designers, we noticed that when we take the time to explain the fundamental principles of design or UX, clients appreciated learning and enjoyed the process even more. This lead to the creation of a workshop series—short learning sessions which we lead and bring to you and your team.

Sharing our knowledge with you creates a unique environment:

  1. A truly collaborative working relationship
  2. A common language and vocabulary
  3. Allows you engage in the creative process more effectively
  4. Elevates outcomes
  5. You can confidently support the work after the project

Workshop Format

The 60-min workshop format provides a high level understanding of the topic and a handful of easy to remember takeaways you can use and put into practice immediately.

Q&A throughout makes the time immediately relevant to your team. And we get to know more about you and how you work. It’s also a lot of fun!

Schedule a Workshop

We usually conduct our workshops as part of our process when you engage in a design project. However, we also provide the workshops as a stand-alone offering. We have given the workshops as lunch-and-learn sessions, offsite programming, and team-building outings with dozens of marketing teams.

Julia and her colleagues at Opus Design have figured out how to demystify design by providing a handful of practical tools that promotes the kind of thinking and action needed across teams responsible for developing content of all kinds. In their workshop, teams with little to no background in design, leave with a common language and process. Simply put, they turn “good design” into something we can all get our arms around.
