Why should librarians care about graphic design? Understanding and using principles of graphic design allows clearer and more effective sharing of information, which is key to librarianship. Everyone can design useful and beautiful visual communications: no design background necessary. This webinar introduces principles of graphic design, with examples, that you can apply immediately to all your communications: training handouts, email newsletters, signage, and elearning modules. It also covers free and inexpensive design applications and where to find stock photos and icons to use royalty free.
