Graphic Design Basics for Small Businesses


About this FieldTrip

Are you a small business owner who is trying to market yourself while also managing your everyday tasks? Are you overwhelmed with trying to do design on your own and trying to figure out how to work with colors, typography, graphics, etc. to make your business look attractive? Well, let’s get you out of your head!

I will teach you some basic graphic design rules that you can (and should) start to use immediately to improve your work. You will also walk away with free tools you may not know about that are available for your everyday design use.

If you want to volunteer to have your website, social media accounts or any other design work reviewed and discussed in this FieldTrip, send your information to director@moniquerenee.design at least five (5) days prior. I will review a maximum of five, so send it on over!
