                Your Instructor: Megan Weeks

                 

                In the graphic design world, It can be easy to get caught up looking at what everyone else is doing and comparing your beginner-level designs to someone else’s  masterpiece. It’s easy to think, well that’s never going to happen, and walk away before you’ve even had a chance to see what you’re really capable of.

                When it came to starting my career in design, it took so much work to learn everything necessary to feel like an expert. It was tempting to just say oh well, it’s too hard.  

                This is imposter syndrome–  that pesky little inner voice that tell’s you you don’t have what it takes, that you’re just pretending.

                Maybe you know that you don’t have technical skills you that need to create logos like a pro… Thats a BIG one! 

                I know you want to create unique designs that are beautiful and as elegant as the brands they represented. Of course you do! 

                I also know that you can do this. 

                The truth is that the feeling of mastery and the confidence that you desire as a logo designer, comes only when you obtain these two things— KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE.

                I’ve created my courses to guide you along as you acquire both!

                Is this course for beginners?

                WordPress is defintley a more advanced platform. However, I am a big believer in just starting and learning by doing. This course will give you that opportunity. If you have no design experience, I would recommend going back to my Custom Branding Process or Logo Design Simplified course to understand design basics before implementing those into a website. 

                Will I learn about the client process?

                Yes! This course will teach you how to onboard clients, the contract to send, and how to get client feedback in an easy way!

                Will I have access to contact you?

                You can leave questions or comments on the lessons and I will do my best to respond back to you within 48 hours! I also will give you my email if you have any other questions. Not only that, but you will get access to my community of creatives where you can connect with other students.

                Do I get immediate access?

                Yes, absolutley! Once you purchase, it is all yours and you have lifetime access.

                Do you offer refunds?

                Due to the nature of the program and enrollment process, we are unable to process refunds once purchased. However, we are committed to our students’ success. If you have trouble with the course, please email us at hello@meganweeksdesignco.com
