About this class

Talented graphic designers can produce some pretty amazing work, but the need for graphics normally extends beyond annual reports, marketing packets, and company websites. The problem is that the price tag can be a little steep for those ephemeral, one-off projects that still really benefit from graphics, things like proposals, project reports, and posts on social media.

This workshop is ideal for people who work for small businesses or nonprofits, who have tight budgets, and who don’t have full-time graphic designers on staff. You’ll learn how to produce basic graphics that can help support your text. And, with practice, you’ll learn how to produce them fast enough that you can keep up with all the other work you still need to get done.

Takeaways

  • Understand the basics of creating simple, flat graphics

  • Expand your toolbox for working comprehensively on rapid fire documents and social media

  • Gain some hands-on experience building out one simple graphic

  • Increase your ability to communicate effectively with graphic designers
