As a small business owner I depend on the expertise of a talented graphic designer for my design needs. Still, there are many times when I have a small project or unique vision that I need to tackle on the fly myself because of time constraints or financial considerations. Butter & Honey's Design Workshop stepped in to fill that void for me. One day under Rachela Brisindi's tutelage gave me the confidence and tools I needed to create professional, compelling designs to better showcase my brand and products. Tools like this are a boon to small business owners. Thank you for creating this one, Rachela.

My expectations for the workshop were to be able to create simple and quick designs for our events and other promo material. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I was able to learn the basic skills required and even more surprised that I was able to retain those skills even a few days after. I really enjoyed the day, it went by so fast and I felt like I left with so much more experience than before I started. I am still having fun creating new designs every day. Thanks Rachela for a great workshop !
