How to get fabulous creative – a guide to working with designers

  • Design is vital to how an organisation tells its story. But the creative process can be daunting. As a skill that is usually outsourced, how do you get great creative that meets your organisation’s needs?

    This workshop and Q&A session will be of interest to not-for-profits:
    • thinking about getting some design work done
    • about to engage a designer (pro bono or paid)
    • working with a designer
    • wondering how to know what’s good design and what’s not.

    Forest and Bird’s Marketing and Communications General Manager Phil Bilbrough will cover how to:
    • think about an approach to design
    • clarify your requirements, choose and brief a designer
    • understand the designer and their world
    • make the most of a pro bono offer
    • give feedback that will help the project
    • identify red flags.

    Part of Phil’s role at Forest and Bird is managing its brand and advertising. Prior to this he worked for web development and advertising agencies.

    Phil says this workshop will be a fun discussion about the creative relationship with a designer, covering where things can go wrong, and strategies to get the most out of the experience.
