Have you ever wanted to learn graphic design techniques? Become more familiar with Adobe Illustrator? Need to create a poster for a presentation? Then join us for a hands-on workshop for Tips on Creating with Adobe Illustrator, with Hillary Yeager of the University Writing Center. This workshop is open to all MTSU faculty, staff and students.

Location: Library 264A (Instruction Classroom)
Workshop Details and Topics
This informative workshop will cover how to design a poster presentation using Adobe Illustrator, with an emphasis on the humanities (although all disciplines are welcome). This is particularly useful for faculty and students getting ready for poster presentations at conferences, exhibitions like Scholars Week, or other colloquia or assignments requiring poster design. We will discuss some design basics (creating focal points, using fonts effectively, exploring color, maximizing spacing and developing an eye-catching layout) and provide an opportunity for hands-on application of skills. The workshop will also create a basic template for users to take and use for their own projects beyond the workshop.
