NEW Webinar! Design Trends 2018

July 24, 2018

2 p.m. Eastern • 1 p.m. Central • Noon Mountain • 11 a.m. Pacific

Today's higher education marketplace is crowded, and it's more important than ever to find ways to make your college's brand stand out above the rest. As a designer or someone who works with one, you've got to capitalize on current trends in design as a way to keep your college well-positioned among students and other constituencies. That means no more boring stock photos, minimalist graphics or half-hearted infographics. Those won't grab anyone's attention. Instead, you've got to take risks, especially when it comes to design.

This 90-minute webinar for creative professionals and designers focuses on riskier concepts, color schemes, engaging images and other current design trends that can effectively build your college's brand and make it stand out.
