Workshop Description:

As library workers, we often promote our services, programs, and events through displays, flyers, posters, signs, and other visual outputs.

No design experience? No problem!

This workshop will introduce attendees to a useful and easy to use graphic design tool, Canva. Attendees will have the opportunity to work hands on with Canva in order to make a flyer to visually communicate their library programs and services. This workshop will teach you not only how to utilize Canva, but how to have fun while creating graphic design projects for your library.

In this workshop, attendees will:

  • learn about graphic design basics including typography, color theory, and other fundamentals of graphic design
  • understand the importance of recognizing good design as the starting place for creating professional, appealing work of their own
  • learn how to make intentional and informed creative decisions during graphic design projects
  • gain hands-on experience working with a variety of graphic design resources and tools, including Canva
