Are you being asked to create documents, newsletters, email marketing or websites as part of your job? Without formal training it can be hard to know where to begin. Jumping on the computer and pushing text and images around on a virtual page doesn't lead to strong communication materials. Unfortunately, that's exactly how most design novices begin (and end) a project – and it's a frustrating and unsatisfying experience.
The good news is that with a bit of education, some practice (and a little bit of patience) people who aren’t trained designers can create more professional, engaging and sophisticated communications. In two days, Design Principles for Non-Designers will give you a solid foundation on which to build better marketing materials.
