Graphic Design for N00bs
We’ve once again convinced internet superstar Ben Benjamin to teach an introduction to graphic design class. This class was a big hit last year, and we’re delighted to be able to offer it again. Space is limited, so sign up early to avoid a future of aesthetic disasters!
January 14th and 21st, Sunday. 12pm to 3pm

Introduction to design for multiple media — mainly Web and print
If youâ€™re not a designer but are sometimes called upon to design things, this class is for you. Weâ€™ll walk through a typical design process and along the way weâ€™ll learn some basic tips and tricks, design strategies, and some broad design principles. The goal is not so much that you will become a good designer in two 3-hour sessions, but more that you will learn how to avoid some of bad designâ€™s biggest traps.
Additionally, youâ€™re encouraged to bring in one design disaster (preferably of your own making) which weâ€™ll look at as a class and see what can be doneto help.
