DIY Graphic Design Lesson (30 min)

50


50 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will share with you the basics of how to create your own, easy & (mostly) free graphic designed, cool stuff in 30 minutes.

I used to hire Fiver.com to make my graphics and found it super frustrating to communicate with someone in Indonesia or Jamaica. I would pay my $5 and not be satisfied with the result. Then I'd pay another $5, and the same thing would happen. I tried a few times and gave up. Then, I tried some U.S. graphic designers for more money than was comfortable paying but didn't see any other solutions and the same thing happened. I wasn't satisfied with the results. The graphic designer would feel the deal was done, and I still didn't have a result that made me happy. Sigh.

Finally, I learned how I could make cool stuff for my website, social media and emails for free or for less than I was paying the guys at Fiverr.com ($5). Hallelujah!

The software is free to use (some elements $1 each or upload your own), and I'll teach you where to get free stock photos to support you in making your...

Simbi trades are available Monday-Friday from 9-5, EST (New York) time zone.

Training & Qualifications


I am a small business entrepreneur wearing the many hats needed to run a successful business.

I've been fulfilling my own graphic design needs for a couple of years. It's so much easier than trying to communicate back and forth with a designer that doesn't "get" what you're looking for.

Availability & Preferences


Monday-Friday 9-5 EST (New York time)

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Abigail Thurston

Hello! My passion is helping people as an intuitive, co-creative healer and kinesiologist. I live a holistic lifestyle and have a professional practice as a heart-based healer, helping women ma...ke room for more joy through releasing painful feelings with body-based and energy-based techniques. My life hasn't always been easy or happy. I've experienced a lot of grief, loss, and made a few big mistakes including a wasband (former husband). I joined a cult religion. My Father and a surrogate Dad both died from heart attacks. Two of my closest friends took their own lives. I joke that in this life, I opted for the advanced courses in family dysfunction. My family practices shunning and ignoring and I'm on the outs. Despite these past tumultuous events, I'm mostly happy these days. I strive each day to live in my truth and reach for more joy. My friends say... I'm the least judgmental person they know. (How can I judge when I've been through so much?) They also say... I'm a very peaceful person to be around and feel calmer from being near me. I hear this all the time, so I'm just repeating what I hear. LOL! I'm a Maine native, now residing in the beautiful upper Hudson Valley of New York with my husband and furry feline kids. I love soul connections and being part of giving tribes of people. I value friendship, community, and authenticity. You could say I'm also a healer-preneur. I've learned how to complete my own techie chores, developing my websites, doing my marketing and SEO work for my business. These are the surprising, modern life skills one acquires when they choose to be self-employed. Our modern world. ;) In my down time from working with clients where I provide healing support; I offer crazy balloon animals and arches and am beginning to flip houses as a real estate investor. My exciting life! show more
