hiring or managing video creatives.This talk will answer your questions about how you can start small, find your perfect
audience, craft a series of videos without breaking the bank, and use video to actually grow your business. We’ll cover
all the reasons why video may actually be the perfect tool for designers, allowing you not just to showcase your work,
but to tell clients the story of why your service is valuable.
