Last night marked the first session of our Design Series at Next Door® Café in Lakeview East, which focused on the benefits that investing in design can provide for businesses of all types. We were thrilled to be able to provide advice and answer questions for business-owners across a variety of fields and in various stages of developing their design elements.
The BBG Design Series continues next month at Next Door® Café, with our next class focusing on helping business-owners and creative professionals work better together to create unforgettable results. If you’re looking to learn how to communicate more effectively with your creative team or your clients, we hope to be able to see you there for what should be a fun and engaging discussion. Check our Twitter and Facebook in July for the registration link for that class.
