Private
A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

This course will show you what you need to know to create social media content that will boost user engagement.

We will start by looking at what kind of content needs creating, and will use Adobe Illustrator to set up multiple social templates and produce vector assets. After this, you'll focus on making animated GIFs using Adobe Photoshop and moving graphics with Adobe XD.

You will be guided through document setup and asset management using CC Libraries to support your workflow, and will learn how to use the programs effectively to get the best results with minimum effort.

This is a hands-on course and after being shown how, you will have the opportunity to create graphics and be given reusable assets to do lab session challenges with tutor support.

After creating assets, you will be shown how to publish your work and optimise it for a variety of social media platforms.

Our Social Media Content Creation course is available as a Live Virtual Classroom. We also offer private training at a location of your choice.
