Collections will allow brands to offer designers and clients a beautiful and interactive debut of new product collections, with big beautiful photographs, descriptions and specs, and tearsheets.
Brands may submit up to 50 product images and 100 words of copy through an online portal, which will be published on a page dedicated to that collection. Visitors to the page will have the ability to print a tear sheet of the collection, download and share images, and link to the product or company page for additional details.
Editorial upgrades include a Q&A with the brand’s creative director by a Business of Home editor, and inclusion in a special section of our design newsletter. After you build your Collection and submit payment, you’ll be given a list of options to upgrade editorially.
Email email@example.com to learn about virtual product presentations, documentary-style videos, dedicated eblasts and more.
LAUNCH webinars are intensive two-hour sessions, consisting of both short presentation and lengthy Q&A with expert instructors. Consider these courses a consulting session—come armed with questions, ready to pick your instructors' brains to discover how you can apply their strategies to your business. Learn to draft airtight contracts, create a digital marketing strategy, manage client expectations and difficult personalities, build confidence when pitching clients, figure out exactly how to charge for your design expertise, and more.
A la carte tickets to each class are available for $125. BOH Insiders get complimentary access to each course.
BOH Insiders can visit their Benefits Portal, where all current LAUNCH classes are listed, to register directly with Zoom. Or, email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Online classes are conducted through Zoom webinar. All you need to join is reliable internet access and speakers with good volume.
Some, but not all, online webinars are recorded and available after-the-fact to BOH Insiders in the video recording library. Everyone who registers to attend a course will receive a video link, if available.
Some instructors do not wish to have their classes available as video, due to the proprietary or changing nature of their content. Classes conducted in person are not recorded.
