Design for Non-Designers
Designing with accessibility in mind is one way to ensure that digital devices, products, and pages meet the needs of diverse individuals by limiting barriers to user experience.
We look at how design can be used to facilitate inclusion and anti-oppression in a variety of media, exploring the concept of ‘decolonizing design’ and the principles of human-centered design.
We look at a relatively lesser known yet equally compelling tool in the designer’s toolbox: the world of Creative Commons. Getting familiar with the world of Creative Commons can enhance your creative work in several ways: first and foremost, by giving you access to a vast library of open access resources that you can adapt and draw inspiration from. Secondly, it offers you flexible and simple means to make your work discoverable by others.
Today we explore the world of Canva, a graphic design platform that can be used to create all manner of visual content, from social media graphics to presentations and lots more.
We look at an accessible way to create visual stories using Adobe Spark, a one-stop shop for creating and sharing visual content across many formats.
In this post, we explore hands-on tools to help your nonprofit create and share original designs using the Adobe suite. Whether for business or for storytelling, the products in Adobe’s extensive catalogue are a great way to connect content and data in dynamic, accessible, and creative ways.
Good design is unmistakably intuitive, captivating, and compelling. It is also deceptively simple: the more impactful a good design is, the more work usually goes behind the scenes to streamline its presentation. In fact, this is arguably where the magic of good design lies: taking complex ideas and turning them into accessible and evocative calls to action.
