    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.

A Must for Female Designers

Each episode of the Uncool Designer podcast offers great resources for designers. The interviews are full of information and cover very relatable topics. Anna offers a positive outlook and inspires designers to pursue the big dreams they have.

A great podcast for designers, from a designer

I love Anna Dower’s real and direct take on graphic design and owning your own design business. I whole heartedly agree with the advice and content she puts out there. A great show for both young and seasonal graphic designers.

Listen now and thank me later!

I’d highly recommend the Uncool Designer podcast! I was a mentor student of Anna’s and even though she gave me so much wonderful advice and help during our mentorship, this podcast is just as valuable to me.

While listening to the latest episode ‘How to get design clients’, I found myself thinking of tons of ideas on how to engage my own clients. It was the perfect way to kickstart my creativity and really get the brain flowing with ideas.

I look forward to each new episode because Anna has such a unique and fun way of approaching design and business unlike anyone else.
