December Daily® Product Play

Enrolling now


In this workshop we will take a closer look at playing with three specific shapes in December Daily® documentation: circles, hearts and stars. These are three of my favorite shapes and there are so many different ways you can creatively play with them to support and complement your stories - from using already designed products to creating your own. We'll also be talking about the specific design concepts that go into working with these shapes which will be useful for you in projects going forward (repetition, layering, scale). I'll be using products from this year's December Daily® collection but the products are not required as many ideas can be translated to what you might have in your memory keeping product stash. As always I'll be coming at this with storytelling and simple design at the forefront.

PLEASE NOTE: Ideas and pages created for this workshop will become part of my December Daily® Foundation Pages for 2017. As always I will be sharing an overview look at all my Foundation Pages on my blog in late October/early November  - this means that the pages I'll be showing you how i create will likely be shown on my blog before the how-to appears here in the classroom. The actual how-to process videos and step-by-steps of my 9 specific pages created for this class will be exclusive to this workshop.
