Graphic Design
Creating and Designing 

Greetings Sequoyah, 

In one of our sessions on Monday we talked about creating printables for class. Posters, infographics and the like.

We have a great interface on our computers in PowerPoint. PowerPoint is much easier to use for text and graphics than Word. PowerPoint allows the user a greater variety of design layouts and choices as well as easier placement of images. Font, font size, color, backgrounds, images, and whitespace all need to be explored when designing works for public consumption. 

Suggested Websites: Piktochart - http://piktochart.com/ it is an online infographic creator. Canva (https://www.canva.com/) is a great site for creating a variety of things from posters to presentations. It is somewhat limited but a great place to start. 

Elearninginfographics - http://elearninginfographics.com/ is a repository of some great educational infographics. I really liked their article on implementing good graphic design at http://elearningindustry.com/10-tips-improve-visual-design-skills-non-designers?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Do you have favorite websites for designing items? Please share.

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy
