It’s not uncommon for people in L&D to have to take on some, if not all, of the visual design of their projects. It’s also not uncommon for those same people to not have a background in visual design. So what can you do if you know you want to use design more effectively in your projects but you just aren’t sure where to start?

In this session, you’ll explore simple strategies that anyone can use to solve the most common visual design challenges in L&D projects. You’ll find out how considering audience, context, simplicity, and flow can help you review your own designs and find quick ways to make them stronger. You’ll then start applying these approaches immediately through in-session activities where you’ll brainstorm ideas for how to rework design don’ts into design dos.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How considering your project’s audience, context, simplicity, and flow can give you vital clues on how to improve your design
  • The basics that can help you quickly improve your graphic design skills—including layout, font choice, color palettes, consistency, size, and more
  • Simple techniques for simplifying, organizing, and modernizing your current visual designs
  • How to use the strategies from this session to critique weak designs and come up with options for improving them


Designers and developers.
