TechSoup Canada

Creating professional event posters, annual reports and blog images are easy when you have the right talent and the right tools (ie. Adobe Photoshop), but what if your nonprofit is not equipped with them? No problem!

Join us on April 14th to learn how good design can elevate your nonprofit’s brand, and how to create modern and professional graphics by using day-to-day Office programs, such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel.

At this session, you will learn: 
•  How elements and principles of design affect your brand online (& offline!) 
•  Tips and tricks on using Office programs to design modern & professional posters 
•  Which design compositions will help you create better graphics 
•  Design tools and resources

Who should attend?   
•  Program staff & volunteers at nonprofits, charities and social enterprises who do not have access to state-of-the-art design programs. This event is also for anyone who is interested in improving their organization’s collateral materials!

Live streaming   
• This event will be live streamed, so you can attend no matter where you are! Joining is easy as there is no need to RSVP; just go to http://www.livestream.com/techsoupcanada around 5:30pm Eastern Time.
