The free events – staged by the Marches Growth Hub Telford & Wrekin – will show businesses how to create the perfect logo, sell successfully and trade across national and cultural barriers.

Claire Critchell, manager of the growth hub, which is delivered by Telford & Wrekin Council, said the sessions would offer invaluable insights for a wide range of businesses.

“These three events form part of our ongoing commitment to bring the very best business advice across every aspect of commercial life to Telford.

“All three experts leading these sessions have proven experience in their respective fields and have a long track record of achieving results for the companies they advise.”

Graphic designer Tristan King of Voodoo Design, one of the hub's extended team of Growth Hub Gurus, will run a workshop on logo design – Does your logo have mojo? – at the hub’s base on the Innovation Campus in Priorslee on February 26.

The event, which gets under way at 9.15am, will include comprehensive advice on the do’s and don’ts of logo design, a live demonstration and guidance for attendees to start work on their own designs.
