Flyer Design for Beginners workshop with Andrew Lynn

November 16, 2013 @ 4:30 pm 6:00 pm EST

Do you feel like a clipart captive? Do you experience an irrational fear of fonts? Let’s work through your design dilemmas and learn to make interesting and attractive event materials using a mixture of media and whatever tools you have. Bring a current project and your laptop and get ready to make good graphics. We will learn software tricks and tips, but this is not a Photoshop class. After all, you can make stuff without a computer! In addition to such programs as Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp and Word, we will also use scanners, photocopying, collage and hand illustration. In this workshop we will: view examples of the good and the bad; learn basic graphic design principles; create a clear visual message; work with different types of media; make multiple versions of a concept; review and critique each others’ work; develop and finalize a design for your project.
