Bring your images back from the dead

We all have to work with images in our presentations; but sometimes the photographs we’re given to work with are of poor quality. This session would feature a range of techniques for making them look the business - as well as showing how to incorporate images from a range of sources so they all belong on the same page.

Visual product identity

People deliberately opt out of advertising while increasing their activity in various social media. The result is that the visual identity of the products becomes even more important than before.

  • How do we navigate between names, names, colors, shapes and packaging types to find the most effective and sensible identity?
  • How do we appear in the most up-to-date way in relation to visual trends and to the general social debate?

These are some of the issues that will be presented, discussed and hopefully answered in this post.

We hope that you get both updated and refreshed knowledge, and that you go out with a little
more arguments for the good solutions than when they arrived.

Color Talk featuring Adobe Creative Cloud

Color is fun. It’s how I usually start my projects, taking the time to choose, or create, just the right color palette. And the CC apps have so many different ways of creating color. I can’t believe we get paid to do this!
But the fun ends quickly if you don’t use production techniques that make color changes and edits quick and easy. If you’ve spent too much time changing colors on a project, learning just a few tips and tricks before building a document can save hours.
