Think Like a Visual Designer

 

Class Description

Great design is invisible. 

Design is not about what it looks like, it’s about understanding and outcomes. It has the power to communicate ideas, influence people, and impact your business. But too often, we put too much emphasis on how it looks.  We let the message get stifled by colors, fonts, and layouts. 

As attention spans get shorter and increased screen time changes how we consume information, design has the potential to help us  get customers, colleagues, and clients to understand and act. 

In this class, you will learn how to think like a designer and go beyond aesthetic. 

You will:

  • Learn how to consider your audience as the first step in the design process.
  • Develop an understanding of universal design principles including information hierarchy, typography, alignment and more.
  • Walk through practical design examples including resumes, presentations, spreadsheets, social media posts, and email signatures.
