Designing and delivering workshops to start-up businesses

Boulder Design has been asked to design and deliver a season of workshops to business start-ups across Northumberland. We will be running sessions in six locations across the county each month from September 2009 through to March 2010 (and beyond, if funding allows).

The workshops will be split across two sessions: an introductory half-day, followed by a more advanced session.

We have decided to focus on what having a website means for your business and highlight some of the key issues from the web development world, rather than try to teach the aesthetic and technical processes of web design. The initial brief was to introduce attendees to a “all-in-one” website design package, but we felt that this only proliferated non-standards-based code, and frankly low quality sites.
