Designing Promotional Materials
Learn tips and tricks for designing print and electronic materials, including concert programs, brochures, church bulletins and newsletters (you never know when you’ll become the Secretary!), postcards, and websites. Topics include fonts, graphics, whitespace, and general formatting. The workshop is geared towards those with intermediate computer experience. Microsoft Word and Publisher, as well as Dreamweaver, are featured, although the ideas shared are applicable to other programs on all operating systems. Handouts are available, and a sampling of print materials is available onsite for exploring additional ideas.
