Conference Archive

Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2018 - March 27, 2018

Caitlin Steinbach Locke

Instructional Designer
George Washington University

You’ve put hours into analyzing content, spent days painstakingly storyboarding your product and drafting the scripts, and carefully thought through navigation choices—and yet, when you show it to your client or stakeholders, you’re still met with “Great, but can you make it look nicer/better/modern/pretty?” What more can you do when you’ve utilized sound learning theory and development strategies, but you’re still expected to be a graphic designer on top of it all?

In this session, you’ll explore how the combination of just a few fundamental principles of design can make what you create look more coherent and fluid, even if you’re not a trained graphic designer. You’ll learn how to analyze existing design, identify areas for improvement, and understand what principles and strategies can help you achieve a more aesthetically appealing design. Whether you consider yourself to have an aesthetic eye or not, these principles will enhance the presentation of your content in a way that will impress your audience and stakeholders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About basic principles of design that can quickly enhance your visual design skills
  • How to analyze existing content and identify the weak areas of a design
  • How to use design best practices to improve those weaknesses
  • How to break down efficient designs into the fundamental design principles

Audience:

Novice to intermediate designers and developers. 

Participant technology requirements:

A laptop running Microsoft PowerPoint or Apple Pages.
