Flower Prep School: The Essentials

Save on training time and get inexperienced designers on the design bench sooner.

It’s tough to find designers. With labor shortages, cross training in design is essential. When you do hire a brand new designer, on-boarding is time consuming and difficult.

This course teaches universal design basics and provides a solid overview of the fundamentals of design. 

Throughout this interactive course an experienced designer takes a brand-new designer through visual demonstrations to teach the tools of the trade- the "whys" and the "hows" , the basics of care/handling and design skills including mechanics, production and pricing strategies. 

Perfect for new design hires and cross training current non-design employees.
