I’m excited to announce my first workshop! Social media is a powerful tool for sharing what you love and getting visibility for your work. But let's be real. It's can be intimidating to put yourself (and your work!) out there. It's one thing to have a stellar product or service, but it's another to reach the right audience, grow your followers, and devise a strategy for meeting your goals.
Whether you work in the creative field, own a business/brand (or have an idea for one), or manage a community, social media can make all the difference. By learning how to make social media work for us, we can access more opportunities - extra cash, exposure/press, a new career, and more! Best of all? It doesn't have to be painful or scary!
Join The Cosmos on Thursday 11/29 for an intimate workshop to demystify social media and to grow your account. Led by designer and art director Catherine Kim, who successfully launched a new career off the power of social media, you'll receive useful tips, actionable strategies, and honest feedback for your project in a supportive small-group space! We will be centering women of color for this workshop.
This workshop includes:
Getting over fears so we can confidently share personal work
Brainstorming projects and feedback for your idea
Identifying your audience
Utilizing social media to gain visibility, find clients, and connect

I've been a lover of books since I was a child. Growing up, I would explore books in the Arts & Design section in Barnes & Noble, mesmerized by their beautiful covers and vibrant pages, imagining someday my work might be beautifully housed in a book as well.
So, I was very excited when Blurb books reached out to make this dream a reality. I knew I wanted to bring together of some of my favorite images and make a fun, light book that would bring a pop of color to someone’s coffee table. Blurb has a wide array of sizes and paper styles to choose from, and I chose the 7x7 size for my book –the perfect bite-sized book of candy-colored goodness.
Blurb has various bookmaking tools (see all the options here!) to make the book designing process as easy as possible. I used the Adobe InDesign plugin –since I'm comfortable using InDesign it allowed me to focus on the art and design of the book. The plugin also makes it easy to upload and submit your book once you're done.
If you're not sure which papers to use, no worries! They send you a swatch kit with paper samples inside. After uploading the book via the InDesignplugin, I received the book in about a week. It was so exciting to get the book and unbox it (like opening a present!) and hold it in my hands. I loved how it turned out. The construction was solid, the paper was high quality and the colors were vibrant. And you can grab a copy here!
If you've ever thought about making a book, I would highly recommend using Blurb to do so!
