Young People’s Meeting: Creative Coaching with Sarah Atkins

In our January meeting we'll be joined by Sarah Atkins who is a creative and branding coach with over 15 years experience of working in the fashion industry and as a surface design tutor. 

Over the course of the workshop Sarah will teach us using creative exercises how to develop a brand identity and mission statement. We'll find out what makes a good brand iconic, how a name and visual identity can tell a story about your values, and the power of a good mission statement!

Sarah's coaching and mentoring covers: 

  • Helping new and emerging designers move forward with their practise 
  • Building self-confidence and networking skills 
  • Developing a personal brand and identity

As I know several members of the group are looking to move into product design careers or courses, if it would be helpful to set aside some time for questions about her career path please let us know when you book your place.

As usual there will be pizza provided!

Attending this event is free, just sign up via eventbrite. Spaces are limited- if you register and then find you can't make it after all, please email participation@craftscouncil.org.uk to let us know so that we can give your place to someone else.
