Business Card Workshop W/ Eugenie Jolivett Fontana

  • Outlet 2500 Northeast Sandy Boulevard Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

Let’s create your own professional-quality business cards (for non-designers) on a budget. So you’ve been having a wonderful conversion at a event or party about your business and the “Do you have a card?” moment arises. It’s in that moment you think about the reason not showing or not having cards. Because you know that it’s your brands first impression in the offline world, you tell “that story” and think about putting it on the “to do list”. This Business Card Design Workshop will equip you with all that’s needed to develop and create a business card you feel good about presenting.

From the layout, file preparation for print, and the materials choice, this practical workshop will guide and inspire you through the different steps of the creative process. We’re working with a small amount of content for the workshop that will aid you in this beginner level experience.

(all tickets price will be donated to w(here) we are, an organization that supports and empowers under represented creatives of color/ LGBTQ+ in the creative industries).

Other then your brain, bring:

  • Your own WiFi ready laptop.
  • Using Adobe Photoshop for file preparation for print {you can get a 1-month free trial from Adobe. Please have the app ready on your device before session begins so we can spend more time creating!}
  • Printers cost NOT included. {there will be a list of printers to choice from for your budget needs!!}

Gather & Garner was founded by Eugenie Jolivett Fontana. Being in the creative world is a significant part of her life.  From her first play in primary school, being the lead singer of an Acid Jazz band, to establishing a design studio, the arts never seem to stop calling her name. The “left side” of her brain has also calls to her. Which was often utilized during the first business she co-founded.  Her company worked within a wide range of industries and received awards from companies like Adobe® Systems.

Eugenie’s worked on projects outside of the interactive design arena, which involved the curation of gallery exhibitions and events. After devoting her time in Fontana Studios, as well as continuing to develop her own creative ventures, she has created Gather & Garner to share her knowledge (along side with other professionals, creatives, and makers). This is an opportunity to support and collaborate with one another from multiple disciplinaries/ backgrounds and unleash your potential.
