Secrets Graphic Designers Don’t Want You to Know About Masterclass

With over 30 years of graphic design experience, I thought it would be fun to put together a class to share my secrets with non-designers. This class will be full of inspiration, aha moments and training for those who want to make their business brand look more professional with the tricks and tips developed over years of study and experience.

Have you ever:

  • Wondered how to better develop your marketing materials to look more up to date, consistent and professional?
  • Wanted to know how to design your promotionals and social media backgrounds like the pros do, so that you can stay competitive and bring in more income?
  • Thought that you just couldn’t afford to market due to the added expense of hiring a graphic designer?


Expand your in-house design skills.

Everyone is trying to save money right now, and I totally get it. As people in business, we all need to be conscious of where our money is going.

The problem is, how do you do it without looking like your 10-year-old did it?

If you have tried to design your own promotionals, or social media backgrounds and want to get better, THIS IS YOUR CLASS!

This FULL DAY masterclass will take place again in the fall of 2021

COST: $149 USD


“Good Design is Good Business” – Thomas Watson Jr.

People are asking: Brenda, why are you telling your secrets?”

Two reasons:

  1. I see poor DIY design is EVERYWHERE and get so frustrated, because I know that companies are missing out on leads, sales and revenue opportunities because of it.
  2. In full transparency, my hope is that even though you are going to be a ROCKSTAR in knowing the basics after this class, you will acknowledge that some of the your complex design projects should be contracted out in order to give your company the best opportunity for growth and visibility. My target market isn’t the DIY’ers… it’s business managers and owners that don’t have the time and energy to learn what I will be teaching!

In this masterclass, expect to learn about:


Why good design is so important for your business and your bottom line.


A strong brand can make or break your company. Find out how to set your brand apart from your competition’s.


How you ‘speak’ to your target market will make or break you


How to use marketing to stand out in a crowd.


Learn what typestyles are complementary and which should NEVER by used together.


Learn basic color psychology and how that relates to your business and your target market.


Learn which file formats to use and when for print, screen and signage.


Learn what the pros do to make their design and composition pop and get results

Deanna D.

I hired Visual Resolve Graphics to design a new visual brand for my consulting firm. Initially I was looking for someone to just design a new logo, but Visual Resolve also designed all of my trade show displays, brochures, and handouts. What a difference it made when I set everything up for my first tradeshow!

With their website development services along with support for annual reports and catalogues, my Red Deer based business is polished, professional, and always putting its best face forward.

Not sure what direction to take with your business and/or your visual brand? Talk to Brenda as she is an amazing coach; she’ll guide you through the process and you’ll come out the other side with a beautiful new brand. When I first called I felt like I didn’t even know what I was asking for. Brenda’s enthusiasm for what she does coupled with her ability to understand the stumbling blocks business owners face made for a successful and enjoyable


Murray F.

“It has been said that people who are really good at what they do make it look easy. Brenda Kolasa of Visual Resolve Graphics is one of those people. I honestly believe that she is one of the best graphic designers working in the business today – bar none. Brenda is professional, accommodating, and damn good at what she does! Writers love to read and I own a truckload of books. I wouldn’t trade the cover Brenda designed for my new book Extreme Esteem – The Four Factors for anything in my library. What does that tell you? The best in the industry lives right here in Red Deer, Alberta. Thanks Brenda – you have my highest recommendation. When nothing but the best will do, you want Brenda.”
