BrainCo - 2012 Summer Creative & Social Media Workshops

WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS?
By the end of the event, you will hopefully have strongly concepted campaigns or designs that will be part of your advertising or design portfolio for years to come.
In the July workshop, Art Directors and Copywriters will work in groups of two.  Designers will work individually. Computers are encouraged so bring your laptop; but if you have no computer experience, don’t worry, your main goal is working your way to a killer concept.  Executions can come later.

In the August workshop, gain an understanding of social media and its necessity in today’s marketing landscape. Facebook and Twitter are just the beginning. We’ll help you learn which social media tools are best for you and how to use them to their fullest. This fun and engaging course is taught by instructors who use these tools every day and are passionate about sharing their knowledge with you.

WHO ARE THE INSTRUCTORS?

Your instructors will be working design and advertising professionals from top Minneapolis agencies. They have the highest standards to help you develop and improve your concepts.

WILL I WORK ALONE OR WITH A PARTNER?

Art Directors and Copywriters will work in groups of two. Designers will work individually. If you register with a partner, that partner will be your teammate for the entire workshop. Otherwise, we will pair you up and rotate partners per assignment.

HOW WILL I BE CRITIQUED?

You will receive feedback and suggestions from your fellow classmates as well as instructors. We realize that students will be from a variety of levels and will consider that during our critiques.

WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW THE COMPUTER PROGRAMS?

Your main concern is to focus on strong concepts first, then execution. You are encouraged, however, to take your work as close to completion as you can. But if you have no computer experience, don’t worry.Your main goal is working your way to a killer concept. Executions can come later.
