  • What are you about? Workshop - Recording

A workshop for creatives to nail down the dreaded About page with Small Fry Collective and Brand Warrior.

Last time we tackled brand stories with Nicola which was received so well! This time we're back and looking to tackle the dreaded.. About page. Wanting to spruce your about page up, or starting from scratch? This is the workshop for you.

Whether you’re an illustrator who is just starting out, or you’re more established in your work, this practical workshop will shift your perspective, get you thinking differently and give you the ingredients you need to create an About page, which stands out and shines.

In this workshop, we will explore and discover:

💥 The dos and don’ts in the About world.

💥 How to write a killer opening paragraph (because first impressions count).

💥 Turning experience and interests into stories people want to read.

💥 Creating reason to believe and why it matters.

💥 How to spice it up and stand out!

By the end of the workshop, your perspective will have been shifted and your About page reinvented. Into a business tool, you’re proud to share to shout about you.

Please email [email protected] with any questions.

FEEDBACK: “The workshop was super helpful in refining my ‘about me’ page! It really made me think about getting my personality across in the opening paragraph and the WHY behind my illustrations” @pritchards_pencil
