Graphic Design Fundamentals

Knowing the fundamentals of design means increasing your visual literacy, which means more efficient and effective communication in all aspects of your work-life or business. We will teach you how to use hierarchy, scale, contrast, colour, and white space to create easier-to-read, more eye catching and memorable documents. We will base all our discussion in story telling through design, helping you transform strategic ideas into engaging visual communication. 4 days / 24 hours

InfoGraphics: Telling Compelling Stories with Your Data

We will begin by reviewing the differences and similarities between data visualization and information graphics, then focus on the design of information graphics – how you can tell more compelling, usable, and effective stories with your data. The workshop will end with a brief overview (and resource handout) on different, ready-made tools for visualization. 4 hours

PowerPoint Works!

If you or your staff create presentations that are unclear, overloaded, and confusing, we can help. After this one-day workshop, your PowerPoint presentations will have a clear message, focused content, and effective visuals. We will discuss planning, editing, writing, pacing, and communicating visually, all within the context of who you’re communicating with, what they already know, and what you’d like them to know, do, or decide. 3 hours

Social Media Crash Course

Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are powerful marketing tools, allowing you, your business, or your organization to connect with the right people at the right time. Learn creative ways to use these tools and develop a long-term engagement strategy. Explore the power of 140 characters. Learn how to leverage LinkedIn to network with business professionals and organizations. Connect with customers, colleagues, or prospects, and increase your brand’s visibility. 2 days / 12 hours

Typography Crash Course

Typography is considered the most important part of most visual communication. And yet, it’s often the part of a design that’s left for last, or barely considered at all. Learning typography can appear overwhelming, with its rules and the thousands of typefaces available for download online. This workshop aims to change that. If you’re intimidated by typography, or even just aren’t quite sure where to start, we can help. We will start with an overview of the most useful typographic terms and concepts, then use a hands-on approach to better your typographic applications. 2 days / 12 hours
