Graphic Design for Non-Designers

Monday, March 14
11:00AM - 1:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 8
110 E 2nd St

Graphic design is everywhere, from restaurant menus to your phone. Ever wonder how those design choices are made and what they say about the company or product behind it? More importantly, what are your design choices saying about you?

Join two graphic design pros for a run-down of the basic principles of graphic design. We’ll talk about why design matters, and how it helps you communicate more effectively.

With a hands-on approach, we’ll also teach you how to apply these principles using a free online design tool, and how you can incorporate design into your company or daily life. You’ll leave with a design of your own and the know-how to execute well-designed materials in the future.
