Are you starting a new business?
Have your circumstances changed within an existing business?
Are you thinking about re-branding a business?

On 11th December join Narjas Carrington of iNKLiNGS in an interactive networking workshop. Discover what to do and what to avoid when you are changing the identity of your business or social enterprise. Narjas is an UnLtd Spark award winner and is responsible for designing the new Gloucester Guildhall branding.

Gain professional insights from a Gloucestershire business that specialises in brand identity design. Narjas will share her experiences learned during eight years in business. This promises to be very popular, so book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited to sixteen.

This workshop will give you–

– The tools and understanding to objectively scrutinise what aspects to consider.
– An insight into how to use tactics to develop more straightforward branding.
– An understanding of the creative process and how to get the most out of your designer.
– Ideas for how to build a solid business name.
– The confidence to recognise what works and what doesn't.
– An opportunity to ask for advice and to gain insights into solutions from the experience of the group.
– Give you the opportunity to meet a range of supportive local social entrepreneurs and develop your contacts.

Attendees

This is the third of five planned events with a learning focus. They are aimed at Gloucestershire-based social enterprises, start-ups and established small to medium-sized enterprises.
