    The "C" Word with Jacqui Naunton

    The "C" Word with Jacqui Naunton

    In this episode of the uncool designer podcast Anna Dower chats with fellow designer Jacqui Naunton about the power of CANVA and how graphic designers can use it to add value to their offerings.

    Jacqui Naunton is a graphic designer turned online design teacher for small biz owners over at White Deer. She educates passionate business owners on how they can create their own visual brand and graphics for the early seasons of their business when hiring a designer is not yet an option (but soon will be!). Jacqui focuses on teaching design principles and Canva skills, not just handing over cookie-cutter templates. Jacqui is a new mum, cheesecake lover and Canva fanatic.

GREAT podcast for designers of all levels!

I've been designing for 18 years and am blown away by all of the new things I've learnt since listening to (and implementing) Anna's advice. Love her insight on how to work smarter and be a better designer/business owner.
...Being a freelancer can be a little lonely, but Anna's like my very own virtual co worker!
Great Podcast!!!
