Please note: This event took place in June 2021

In this online workshop for 18-30 year old creative freelancers Emma Blake Morsi and Joyann Boyce will help you explore purposeful branding.

The perfect combination between strategic and holistic, this workshop will explore the key aspects of developing yourself as a purposeful brand as well as how to maximise your digital marketing. We will be looking at your value system and how to theoretically apply it to your own projects using a marketing tool and exploring ways you can embed this within your practice.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Touch on the fundamentals of developing a purposeful brand, from exploring your own value system to how to develop a strategic network of collaborators and partners that align with your values.
  • Explore different offline and online marketing strategies through an ethical lens and useful tools to scope and deliver your projects with maximum impact.
  • Explore how to embed sustainable practices within your work.
  • Learn how to maximise your online presence to get the most out of your practice.
