About This Workshop

The goal of Visual Design is to communicate a specific message to a targeted audience. This workshop will teach you the purpose of visual design, the theory behind design and also how it relates to UX design.

You’ll learn the basic elements of Visual Design, including typography, colour, contrast, gestalt principles of perception, etc. You’ll leave with an understanding of the fundamentals of Visual Design, and the knowledge to go on and create work of your own, building on your learnings in the workshop.

  • A vocabulary for critique and communicating visual problems and solutions.
  • Provide a background of key visual design elements and components.
  • Start to identify aspects that make certain designs work (or not work).
