Design and typographic principles for the visual novice.
This lunchtime session will not take the place of years of design school. However, I guarantee that after this session you will never look at a page the same way again. I guarantee that if you follow the basic principles you learn here, then your work will look more professional, organised, unified, and interesting. And you will feel empowered!
Here's what the process looks like:
First, book your session. After you schedule and pay for your session, you will receive an overview of the session, including some brief prep material to hand out to all attendees before the day.
Then, we’ll meet for a 75 minute lunch-time session at your office in London. Or worldwide via Skype - whichever works best for you.
After the session, I’ll follow up with a handout on practical design advice. This will include tips & tricks, exercises to train your design eye, and design projects for you to try in your own time.
This package is for you if...
You’re forced to design things, often at work, but have no background or formal training in design.
You can look at a poorly designed page and state that you don’t like it, but you don’t know what to do to fix it.
You’d like to learn the four basic concepts that are used in more or less every well-designed job. Once you recognize these concepts, you will notice whether or not they have been applied to your pages and presentations.
You don’t know what’s wrong - so how will you fix it? Once you can name the problem, you can find the solution.
A 75-minute lunch-time session for a team of up to 20 people at your London office or via Skype.
An overview of the basic principles of design that appear in every well-designed piece of work.
Practical design advice, including a quiz and exercise for you to train your design eye.
Handouts with design projects for you to try in your own time.
Visual and typographic examples to inspire your creativity.
