Design Publishing For Business

Overview

From posters to menus, invitations to social media posts, more and more office professionals find themselves designing materials and campaigns off the corner of their desks. While many of us have an interest in design, we don't often know the how's, why's, do's and don'ts that make some materials compelling and others forgettable.

Ensure the pieces you create are eye-catching by gaining a theoretical understanding of the process of visual design and how balance, colour, symmetry, and typography can enhance the pieces you create. This program will help you learn design lingo so you can converse with external agencies and suppliers to get products that resonate with your clientele and properly represent your business. It will also introduce you to Adobe InDesign and Microsoft Publisher through guided, in-class exploration. You'll put your newfound knowledge and creativity to work in a final project using your preferred design program.
