Design Principles for Great Flyers Part 2

Design Principles for Great Flyers Part 2

This class is for library staff who have a basic understanding of good design principles (or have taken part 1 of this class) and want to get more creative with banners, buttons, graphics, and flyers. Realizing most libraries don't have the time or money to invest in high-end graphic design options, this 3-hour class will teach project design in Canva - a low cost, web-based graphic design program.


  1. To understand the principles of good design
  2. To become familiar with the Canva design environment
  3. To create graphic design projects in Canva
  4. To export graphic designs to media or for printing and other distribution outlets

This is a hands-on class taking place in the computer lab at the Middletown Library Service Center. Limit of 12 attendees.
