Good design is so much more than just placing words on a page—it uses subtle visual cues to reinforce and expand on the sense and meaning of writing. Do you wish you had a better understanding of how text, images, and space complement each other? Do you want to know what you, as an editor, can do to make the design process run more smoothly, for clients and colleagues alike?

In this interactive six-hour introduction to the basic principles and practices of effective editorial design, instructor Peter Cocking will share practical knowledge and tips to help you better serve your clients and work more productively with other publishing professionals.

This workshop is geared toward editors of all experience levels who would like to improve their knowledge of design fundamentals.
