Event flyers that pull someone in. Presentations that pop. Social media graphics that stand out among the masses. Marketing material that get new faces in the door. Brochures or newsletters that engage. What do all of these have in common? Elements and concepts of effective design!

By taking the Elements of Design class, you’ll be on your way to making your graphics and materials that attract the eye and mind of the groups you’re trying to reach. We’ll get you started using Microsoft Publisher and Canva, a free cloud-based design app. The skills you learn will transfer to different applications (such as Illustrator, InDesign, etc) no matter what you’re designing!

Topics include:

  • Layers and layering

  • Templates

  • Image sizes

  • Color schemes

  • File formats and types

  • Resizing images

  • Image transparency

  • Consistency across pages

  • How to find good quality source images

  • Shapes

  • Fonts

  • What to emphasize

  • and more!
