If you're looking to win new projects as a freelancer or for your business, beautifully designed proposals can really help you to leave a lasting impression on your clients. My name is Grace Fussell, I'm a graphic designer based in the UK and I'm going to show you how designing creative proposals doesn't need to be intimidating or time consuming. Once you know a few design tips and techniques for good practice. So you may be thinking, what exactly is a proposal? So proposals are smartly designed brochures which introduce a client to your business, and let them know how you would approach a design brief that they've set for you. Proposals can either supplement or replace face to face pitching and can be sent as printed documents or as PDF attachments. In this course, you'll learn how to create proposal designs that are super professional and look amazing. We'll learn how to edit proposal templates in design, adapting them to make them unique, and completely tailored to your own purposes. You'll also learn how to design beautiful creative proposal documents from scratch using InDesign, creating attention grabbing cover, formatting, awesome typography, and working with content pages, masters, color pallets, and textiles. Whether you're a seasoned user of InDesign, or you're relatively new to the software, you'll build up your familiarity of the program slowly. By the end of the course, you'll know exactly how to create a proposal document at the drop of a hat. As well as having picked up lots of transferable print design skills that you can use to create magazines, brochures, books, and other print media. So if you're looking for a new creative way of winning exciting new projects as well as honing your publishing design skills, this course will be a brilliant fit for you.
