Design Workshop: How to create compelling visuals when itís not usually your job

In our scroll and skim culture, visuals make or break whether a reader engages with your content. But we donít all have a graphic design professional on staff to help create compelling images on deadline. If youíre a journalist or communication professional looking to build your design skills, get a head start with our beginner course for designing visuals when itís not usually part of your job.

Beth Francesco, the National Press Club Journalism Instituteís executive director, will share best practices for creating visuals, regardless of your hands-on design experience. Weíll work through specific exercises during the program, so plan to walk away inspired and with at least one design you can use right away. Tickets are $25.
