*A Sampling of Closing Comments from Librarians who took the most recent
class:*

Throughout this class I have learned that I don’t need any amazing software
to be great, there are so many wonderful resources out there that can offer
free materials and help with just the click of a button. I have used
several of these resources before but I have never fully grasped how much
use they really could be. I think I have found a way to make my work a more
sophisticated and creative type of design. This will prove to be extremely
beneficial as my work counts on me for a lot of our in house advertising. I
am not sure I could pin point the most helpful information, I really loved
seeing all of the examples and seeing how creative people can become with
just a few websites and new templates to spice up their designs. I love how
aware I am of shapes, colors, lines, and even the white space in any
project I find myself doing. There are so many hidden rules and standards
that help a piece flow together in a whimsical way. I couldn’t be more
excited to have all of the information that has been given to me and I
thank you for being such a wonderful teacher.

Learning the terminology has been something I have enjoyed. I tend to be a
bit technical so having a better understanding of the process in this
regard is helpful.

I have enjoyed viewing other people's projects and reading what they have
to say about their projects. I find it fun to view other people's projects
and the different style that they use.

The most helpful information has been the links to free image sites. I had
a few bookmarked already, but now I have a ridiculous amount of images to
look through.

I feel like this course was worthwhile for me to take. I now feel like I
have lots of ideas for platforms as well as ideas to use to be more
creative in my role. I enjoyed reading and watching videos about how to use
Canva, book trailers and infographics. It was quite useful at the beginning
of the course to remember the elements and principles of design as I had
forgotten what they were about.

I feel I will now be more independent when designing posters, ads, book
trailers, imovies and ebooks. I can help the students to think about design
features like font and colours to make sure they are visually pleasing and
good for any task where they need to be persuasive.

I would love to see a part 2 of this course as I feel I still have so much
to practice and learn. I will recommend this course to others and felt it
wasn't too overwhelming especially during the holiday season when I
actually had time to do the course.

ENERGIZED BY THE WHOLE THING. I am a little sad for it to end. Very well
done in a cool 'show me' format.I had fun.

As a result of taking this course, I've gained the ability to use and love
Canva effectively. I have gained insight and a vocabulary surrounding
graphic design I didn't have before. For example, I used to see library
webpages that I liked and try to replicate them wholesale for our library,
with mixed results. Now, I can pick apart the different components and
think critically about what works in that particular design, and try to
replicate the harmony of the components instead.

I have already used what I've learned in my work. I'm made attractive
flyers and a social media post for current programs. As I was reading about
writing effective website copy, I was in our website editor, adjusting the
copy I had written to be more user-friendly.

The most helpful tip, hands-down was that we can use Microsoft Word to
remove the background of images. That was amazing!
