Have you ever wondered why we notice some things but not others? What stopped your scrolling through the timeline and take notice? Learn how artists throughout history have taken advantage of human behavior to grab your attention. Join this training to learn how to use science to get people not just interested, but ultimately activated! We’ll cover how humans process visual information and how design can help motivate people to action. This training will cover the basics of photo-based design and help you improve the visuals you need to stand out in a world of noise.

This training is for both beginners/non-designers as well as intermediate designers/communication professionals who want to improve their design and communication skills and gain insight.
