Layout and design are our most requested workshop topics, and we are thrilled to have such a session back on our schedule.

It will be an intense, full day of practical tips and design inspiration you’ll be able to employee at your shop immediately.

The agenda will include:

This will be a one-stop-shop for the working designer looking to sharpen their skills, but there is no experience required.

It will also be a great asset for the entry level layout person as well.
