Easy graphics for Teachers

Good design is important, but...

“I’m a teacher, not a graphic designer!” I’m sure that’s what you would say if I’d ask you why don’t you make beautiful graphics for your materials. Because let’s be honest, teachers have tons of things to do every day: lesson planning, materials research and adaptation, materials creation, teaching, reviewing, and if they have a website add maintaining their site, writing articles, sending newsletters, sharing on social media, etc.

All of this takes time and days are not long enough to fit making nice designs into this schedule.

Yes, good design is helpful for the students because it makes the content easy to understand and go through, but it’s also an energy (and mind sanity) sucker.

The design part is slowing the workflow and it’s an annoying thing to do, not to mention trying to fix a bad design: it takes more than doing it from scratch!

It’s time to delegate! But if hiring a graphic designer seems too much, why not have a fellow teacher who knows how to design materials for students do the work for you (or with you)?

Introducing: Easy graphics for teachers

Learn how to design engaging and visually pleasing materials, or have them made for you! Add your special touch to your materials and make them look more professional without feeling like “stealing” time to other things that are important for you.

Don't add an extra task to your To-Do List

I know how frustrating it can be to add the graphic task to all the rest. I’m a teacher too. And I want to help other teachers like you to create professional and engaging visuals. You don’t have to stress over graphic design because I can do it for you (well, not stressing, I’d rather design!) or I can do it with you by teaching you easy techniques to create your materials and templates with Canva.

How many times have you said “Oh, how I wish someone else could do this” when you had to design something for your students or for your site?  I hear you.  But read on, here’s what I can do for you:

 

DFY (Done For You) I can design your

  • workbooks 
  • eBooks 
  • planners 
  • PDFs 
  • presentations/slides 
  • and all other materials you need for your students

DWY (Done with you) I can teach you how to

  • design your materials in Canva
  • design your templates in Canva (for your blog and social media posts for example)
  • use Google Docs to create beautiful workbooks and PDFs (I know, it seems impossible, but it’s not!)

Less headaches and more time to teach! (Or to do anything else you want to do!)

Testimonials

I have absolutely no eye for colors and I'm not tech savvy so for me creating my own graphics was something very stressful and time-consuming that would bring terrible results. I wanted my products to stand out but had no idea how. I'd waste whole afternoons on Canva to get very bad results. Silvia guided me through the process and were there every step of the way. I still don't have an eye for graphic design but I feel like I'm better equipped and have a better understanding of what is involved and have learned some shortcuts that leave me feeling empowered and accomplished. But mostly, I feel like my final products reflect what I'm delivering and my audience loves them! Silvia was always reassuring and helped me overcome my anxiety over working on graphics. She was with me every step of the way so I also learned as we spoke. She always responded to emails promptly and was a delight to work with for a person like me.
I was creating a new digital product and the thought of creating visuals and formatting the workbook gave me heart palpitations. I don't have the patience nor the inclination to do this myself. Or the creativity for that matter. I didn't want to have to deal with this.You took the worry and hard thinking work away from me. Silvia knew instinctively what visuals to use to match my brand. Her formatting was slick and professional. I am delighted with the result. She were super quick to respond which was reassuring especially when I had my panicky moments. Nothing was ever too much trouble for her. She handled the tech stuff with utmost patience and reviewed and amended the work as often as required. Silvia made my life so easy.

Have we met yet?

I’m Silvia Perrone, teacher, author, experimenter, and I can’t wait to create beautiful and engaging materials with you!  Even though I make videos and publish the occasional selfie on Instagram, my nature is that of an introvert. I prefer small crowds to big audiences, I like to take my time when I do the things that I enjoy doing, and I love to learn to be connected to myself. I’m sure we’ll make the world more beautiful with our gorgeous visuals!

Need to ask me a question?

Parli italiano?

Se non hai problemi a capire l’italiano, dai un’occhiata a questo corso che ho creato per imparare a creare una video lezione interattiva in meno di un’ora. Ci sono quasi 3 ore di video e tutti i contenuti sono subito disponibili a potrai consultarli sempre. In più, aggiungerò nuovi moduli ogni volta che scoprirò un nuovo modo di creare materiali online per i nostri studenti e le nostre studentesse (ovviamente anche questi sempre disponibili e senza costi aggiuntivi!).
