SegunWe welcome design professional ‘Segun Olude to help our membership better understand design principles. ‘Segun is an experienced designer and educator who will give us insight into what designers are looking for when dealing with writers and communicators such as ourselves. We’ll learn how the use of design and visuals/graphics has changed over the last few years, especially with social media increasingly becoming a large part of our day-to-day tasks. We will also learn about infographics – what makes a good one and the best way to put them together.

This is a learning opportunity so please submit any design questions or work/products you’d like to receive feedback on in advance of the workshop so the session can be tailored specifically for our group. Please submit these to Crystal by Monday, May 8.

Let’s learn how to communicate more effectively with visuals!
