Creative Force Chief Evangelist
Daniel Jester is an experienced creative production professional who has managed production teams, built and launched new studios, and produced large-scale projects. He’s worked in-house at brands like Amazon, Nordstrom, and Farfetch as well as commercial studios like CONVYR.

This course is for those who will serve as the administrators of their studio's Creative Force Editorial module. As an admin, you’ll be responsible for working with members of the Creative Force team to get the Editorial Module configured to the needs of your studio as well as integrating Creative Force into your creative operations. You will also have full permission in Creative Force to make changes, making you the primary contact point within your studio to update style guides, workflows, personnel information, locations, and any other aspects of your account.
As we are sure you know, producing editorial content is an entirely separate beast from shooting high-volume e-commerce content. The required shots, styling, and retouching requirements are more subjective. Often, the shooting is taking place on location rather than on a closed set.

As part of this course, you will have the opportunity to learn about the features that comprise our editorial module as well as experience them firsthand in your Creative Force account. As you move through this course, you will simultaneously build out your account and prepare for integrating with your editorial creative process.

Upon completing this course, you will receive a certificate of completion you can share on LinkedIn or anywhere else you feel like sharing your accomplishment!
