Event Details

AIGA Philadelphia presents a workshop with designer and blogger, Joy Deangdeelert Cho. Launched in September 2005, the Oh Joy! blog covers inspiration & design with a focus on Joy's favorite things: design, fashion, and food. Updated 2-3 times a day, the site reaches over 18,000 unique readers a day on the main site, 36,000 readers via RSS, 25,000 Twitter followers, and an average of 850,000 page views per month.

This workshop uses a small group intimate setting to focus on the main questions and obstacles you're facing with starting, maintaining, and growing a blog. Whether you're just getting started or have already started and ready to take your blog to the next level, we'll cover:

-why you should blog
-choosing a focus for your blog
-finding your voice & point of view
-blog aesthetics
-content & frequency
-copying & crediting
-monetizing
-other types of social networking
-balancing blogging & work/life
-and more....
Topics will be focused on the individual needs/questions of those attending.

Whether you're just beginning or already have a blog... this workshop will cover all the "musts" of starting and maintaining a successful blog.

While class will run from 6pm-9pm, there will be some time for individual questions and to mingle with your fellow creatives. Light refreshments will be served.

This event will likely sell-out. It's recommended you make your ticket purchase early.

AIGA Philadelphia

In 1981, a group of Philadelphia designers formed AIGA Philadelphia, the first local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Presently the chapter is comprised of over 600 members. AIGA Philadelphia’s purpose is both integral and complementary to the national organization: to provide the highest standards within the profession and the business community and to stimulate interest and understanding of graphic design and visual communication through lectures, exhibitions, periodicals and other activities.
