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!
Best for: All the people who need to design things, often at work, but have no background or formal training in design. More specifically, this is for the assistants whose bosses now tell them to design the newsletters; the statisticians who see that numbers and stats can be arranged in a way that invites reading instead of snoring; and the professionals who realise that an attractive presentation garners greater respect. And on and on.
