Visual designers make decisions that affect your decisions every day. Why do you stop and look at some billboards, but not others? How can 2D lines make us feel layered emotion? Why did you decide to not recycle one of those political mailers you got? We’ll cover how humans process visual information and what movitates them to act. This training will cover the basics of photo-based design and help you improve your understanding of the many visual communications that surround you. We’ll end the session designing something together, live! This training is for both beginners/non-designers as well as intermediate designers/communication professionals who want to improve their design and communication skills.
