Description

Creating graphics that people want to look at can be difficult to achieve on your own. If you’re always needing a new graphic or marketing piece created but don’t have access to a designer, join us in the Intro to Design course made for marketers!

This part-time, evening course, is developed to introduce you to design principles and tools that empower you to create well-designed materials for your company.

This course takes place two nights per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays), 6:30pm to 8:00pm, for 8 weeks. No prior design knowledge or experience is required, but basic computer skills (typing, using a web browser, etc.) are suggested. The Intro to Design course is created to focus on helping professionals in the marketing and events workplace. In addition to in-class hours, our instructor is available for Q&A throughout the week via Slack.
