“Good design is so much more than adding a logo, images and colors. It is about form, function, tone, hierarchy, balance, emotional connection and most of all…does it convey a message that evokes action.”
According to the Social Science Research Network, 65 percent of humans are visual learners. So, it’s perhaps no surprise that our brains process information presented to us in a visual format far better than text. Infographics are a powerful tool to allow people to easily digest information through the use of visual data, charts, and statistics. Join graphic designer, Natalie Ridgeway to learn how to transform information into memorable, attention-grabbing and even persuasive graphics.
This program is eligible for one credit hour for either a Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) or Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credential holder.
