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 just aren't sure where to start? In this session, you'll explore simple design strategies that anyone can use to solve the most common design challenges faced 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 by looking at how to rework design don'ts into design dos. This session was recorded at the ATD 2019 TechKnowledge conference in West Palm Beach, Florida.
