Smarter Workflows: Time Saving Social Media Templates
Tired of scrambling to create Instagram posts at the last minute? Wasting time finding and reopening old files to make images to share on social media? Wish you could easily apply your branding to all your Instagram posts for a cohesive look? In this class I will teach you how to save time by creating reusable templates to showcase your patterns and illustrations on social media and also how to integrate it into your design workflow so that you have a constant stock of images ready to go.
Whether you are just getting started with a social media account for your business or have been creating content for Instagram so long you can remember the good old days of the brown camera icon, sepia filters and chronological feeds, this class has something for everyone!
After taking this class you will be able to use what you have learned to create a whole set of templates for various social media platforms like Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook. You can then easily slide them into your workflow and save time by creating them all in one go while the illustrations or patterns are still open.
I’ll be teaching you how to create your templates in both Photoshop and Illustrator, so whether you are a vector or rather image artist, you will be able to easily integrate this into your workflow without having to switch software or export patterns or images.
This is a beginner class, based on the assumption that if you are already creating artwork in Photoshop and Illustrator that you want to share on social media, you will already be familiar with the basics that I’ll be using in this class! If you have never used these programs before though, then I recommend taking some beginner classes for those to get yourself acquainted with the software. Or, you can take the examples and recreate them in whatever software you do are familiar with.
