#GuildChat for 02/14/20: Visual Design for Learning

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, February 14th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. This week’s chat is on Visual Design for Learning.

Visual design plays a large role in the effectiveness of learning solutions and learning resources. Done right, visual design can simplify information, make concepts easier to understand and help your work look cohesive and polished.


In this week’s #GuildChat we’ll be joined by expert guests Tracy Parish and Dawn Mahoney. Together we’ll discuss how visuals and graphic design can help what you create be more effective, as well as the strategies and resources available to assist you. We’ll explore the importance of visual design elements such as type, space, color, images, contrast. Regardless of whether or not you see yourself as waving artistic skills, you’ll discover simple techniques that can quickly boost your visual design efforts.

Bring your own ideas and learn about others this week in #GuildChat.
