Librarians are often asked to communicate or speak a visual language. The Graphic Design for Librarians class gives you the rules and tools for making that challenge not only possible but fun.
The four week class gives you an opportunity to network and share ideas with others who are actively engaged in what you are doing. No prior art experience is needed or required to learn simple guidelines for making those graphic design tasks easier and more effective-no matter the project.
Ignite your creative spark while learning basic skills needed to produce practical projects with the hardware and software you probably already have on your computer or can easily access online.
What are librarians who have taken the workshops saying about the class?
I found the section on fonts particularly informative. . .The information on fonts was most helpful.
I learned that I need to be more aware of font, color, and placement. I liked the guidance and direction that was given to us for this project, but I especially loved how you let us use our own creativity for the project. So much fun!
The most helpful information has been the links to free image sites. . .now I have a ridiculous amount of images to look through.
The links to the templates and the link to the free graphic design software was particularly helpful.
Overall, the visual examples and the links to resources have been the most helpful to me. The exercise of creating a flyer from scratch was eye-opening and enjoyable. . .
The video clips were clear and informative.
I have already started using what I learned in creating at least a 1/2 doz new flyers for our programs during the last few weeks! What is so satisfying is that people are noticing that the flyers are a lot more interesting to look at and I have gotten several compliments on them (yeah!)
