Design Hacks: How to create attention-grabbing visuals




In our scroll and skim culture, dynamic visuals can make the difference in whether a reader engages with a story. But not every story can attract a graphic design professional's time in the newsroom, especially in the continuing pandemic news cycle. If you're a reporter, editor, social media manager now handling (or who wants to handle) quick-turn graphics, get a head start with our hacks for designing visuals when it's not usually part of your job.

Beth Francesco, National Press Club Journalism Institute senior director, will share best practices, tools you have at your disposal from home, and exercises for creating visuals regardless of your hands-on design experience.

Tickets are $15 for National Press Club members and $25 for the general public.
