So you think you might be an Accidental Designer?

How many of these statements apply to you?

  • I’ve been asked to create our company’s staff newsletter.
  • I’ve been told to make our social media graphics look better.
  • I’ve been told I need to use InDesign to make our presentations look as good as our competitors.
  • The only person in our office that knew how to use InDesign has left, and I’ve been given their work to do.
  • We’ve had some cutbacks, and we can’t afford to use external designers anymore. I need to learn how to do it myself. 
If this sounds a bit like the situation you’re in then you’re not alone.
