Good news: The beginner webinars continue to be very well received, so we’re adding more. If you’ve hesitated signing up, don’t wait. They’re only an hour. They’re free. You call in and listen while you view it on your computer. It’s easy and it’ll jumpstart the whole Blurb experience if you’re completely new to BookSmart.

We’re also rolling out a webinar for more experienced bookmakers called BookSmart Design Tips and Techniques.

Part instruction and part inspiration, it’ll provide design tips straight from Blurb’s designers.

  2. Hi Greg,
    You can check out the beginner webinar any time – we made the video available to watch anytime.

    I’ll post back as soon as the new, intermediate webinar video is posted.

  5. The design webinar is really an intermediate BookSmart webinar where we’ll talk a bit about upfront design planning (goals, sequencing, whitespace), but most of the time will be spent showing hands on examples of creative ways to design your books such as use of image layouts (two-page spread, grids, etc..), text (font personality, text over images, etc..), and cover design tips and tricks. We’ll adapt it based on your feedback so hope you’ll join us.

  8. Check out schedule at the top. The “Design Webinar” is the intermediate webinar. We’ll try to get a video version of this one up in the next few weeks.
