YOUTH ready to kick start a creative career in graphic design are invited to register for a free workshop next month in Inverell.

Event coordinator, Christy Galbraith says the one-day workshop is aimed at teens and young adults aged 15 – 24 years and will be held Saturday 25 May from 10.00am – 3.00pm.

Expert designer and trainer Kerry Hardy will guide participants through the hands-on workshop which will cover how to create a logo or design using digital arts tools and generate design concepts based on a marketing strategy.

The workshop will provide tips and tricks for design solutions and programs which are readily accessible and do not cost the earth.

Ms Galbraith says the trainer Kerry Hardy has an extensive design portfolio and brings a wealth of creative experience to the event.

“We are very excited to have Kerry Hardy on board for the workshop.

“Kerry has worked extensively as a graphic designer and artist and will take participants through the fundamentals of design.

“This includes colour theory, typography, composition and layout and those attending will walk away with a standout design of their own”.

Creative careers in Australia are on the rise according to a recent report from Since mid-2023, job growth in the creative sector is almost double that of other occupations, including in-house graphic designers and freelance designers.

The workshop is being hosted by Regional Community Builders thanks to funding from the New South Wales Government.

Participants will be required to bring their own laptop and lunch and snacks will be provided. Register for the workshop by emailing or call Christy Galbraith on 0421 361 283.
