CHAPTER LEARNING EVENT
Make Engaging Graphics Quickly Using (Yes) PowerPoint
PowerPoint is one of the most inexpensive, powerful, and easy-to-use graphics tools on the market, believe it or not. In this presentation and workshop, we'll cover some fundamentals of flat art, a style currently dominating the visual design world and used heavily by Google, Amazon, and countless others. You'll then learn to use some of PowerPoint's lesser-known tools to create engaging graphics that rival creations only thought possible with cost-prohibitive programs like Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. And, maybe more importantly, you'll learn how to make these graphics quickly and efficiently.
This presentation is for anyone with limited time and/or money, access to PowerPoint (and little else), and a desire to develop their own visual library. Feel free to bring along your laptop to practice some of the techniques during the application activities.
