Better Graphic Design for Libraries


Every time you create a sign, a handout, or an instructional brochure, you make a design decision. Do these decisions reflect your library's mission and enhance your relationship with patrons? Good design is possible regardless of your skill level or resources. Learn more in this humorous session, complete with design "fails" and time for discussion. We will cover:

WHY: The importance of good design in communicating with your users.
WHAT: A primer in the fundamental rules of good design.
HOW: No time? No color printer? No design software? No problem. Also, discover new sources of inspiration!

After the session, attendees will have a better understanding of the basic principles of good design, as well as a list of tools and practices to make it easier to pursue good design within their library's limitations.
