Visual Communication for Everyone


  • Jun 20, 2019 at OPM Innovation Lab, 1900 E Street NW, SBH22, Tuition: $600  (#24380)   REGISTER


Whether consciously or not, we all communicate visually and make value judgments based on visual design every day. Through exercises and examples, we will illuminate the design principles that guide effective visual communication. With hands-on activities using the most accessible tools at hand, participants will learn to apply these principles in their own work.

How You Will Benefit

Participants will leave this course able to recognize fundamental visual design principles and use them to create work that visually aligns with their intentions. This will result in better collaborations with designers and improve the visual communications they produce every day.

Who Should Attend

We welcome any Federal employee who is interested in improving their visual communications.

Additional Information

  • Lecture will be supported by striking visual examples to expose participants to a variety of design principles in action.
  • Some exercises will be quick and loose to introduce participants to visual design concepts.
  • Others will be more practical in scope as they learn to apply the concepts to their own work.
  • We will provide additional tools and resources to reference after the course.
