Design for Non-Designers

Do you feel like you're always outsourcing every little design project to a contract or even in-house designer? Do you wish you could dig in a bit more to create more engaging social media images, email marketing media, brochures, and powerpoints? 

Join us for a free Design for Non-Designers hands-on workshop. We'll have a presentation on basic fundamentals for good design as well as demonstrations of some easy tools to use. Then bring your laptop and create some images and graphics on the spot to get assistance and guidance from an experienced designer!

Things you'll need:

• Your laptop

• A current graphic design project or an idea for one

• If you have Photoshop, our speakers can help you create your graphics with that! If you don't have Photoshop, you can create a free account with Canva and use that to create graphics with our speakers.

Our Speakers

    good workshop esp appreciated the hands on help after the lecture. Very useful finding how to do image for services based on emotion the page is supposed to generate.

    This is great. Almost don't bother sharing my website posts or blog posts on my facebook page unless they have an image, no matter how good the post, very little likes/shares/clickthroughs without an image. Very frustrating when you think you have a good sense of what makes a good design online, but no ability to create one.
