Mar 14, 2018 6:30pm Inspiration Workshop

In need of a creative project but don't know where to start? This month we'll focus on visual inspiration; where it comes from and how it can help propel your work. We will be doing a fun little exercise in which a piece of inspiration brings a brand to life. Bring your laptops, pencils, pens, notebooks, and paper and get your creative juices flowing!

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we found the people we're inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we have admired, worked with, or had our eye on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
