Designing for your Personal Brand: A Hands On Event

Learn how to best identify your personal brand and bring it to life through a color palette, choice of fonts, and personal logo. With the Starter Kit you will be able to not only create your personal brand, but also apply it to various social media templates that will help you stand out online.

We will select three updated portfolios by San Diego-based designers done in Adobe XD and review them live at our follow-up session on September 10. Those selected will receive a one-year Creative Cloud subscription. Submit your Adobe XD design portfolio by Thursday, September 9, at 11:59PM PST.
