Effective visual communication is a crucial part of the work for many professionals in the non-profit sector, but these tasks often fall to staff members with limited time, resources, or graphic design experience. This hands-on workshop will focus on leveraging an accessible and powerful tool (Canva) to create engaging visual assets as a part of your organization’s communication plan. Learners will engage with the foundational principles of good visual communication and will learn how to create templates, web assets, and print assets using their¬†Canva¬†account.
Learners will be requested to sign up for a free Canva account before the course, if they do not already have access to one. The principles explored in this workshop can be applied to any graphic design program.

  • Be introduced to using brand guidelines and templates to streamline production of graphic design assets (graphics for web, social media posts, et cetera)
  • Gain hands-on experience with¬†Canva¬†and learn concepts broadly applicable to other graphic design programs

 

Who should attend?

  • Non-profit communications officers and managers.
