Visual Literacy for the Web

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Thursday 6th April, 2017

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

It's a problem as old as the web.

In a visual medium many sites, mobile apps and other digital presentations suffer from a giant case of ugly.

Many of the original web "designers" were programmers who produced ugly content because they didn't understand the basic rules of visual design.

You may not be a graphic designer, but, if you work in a visual space visual literacy is important. In about an hour, you'll learn a dozen tips, tricks and techniques that will improve your presentation layer 100%. From typography to layout, you'll be the developer who doesn't "make it ugly."
