Join Foossa's Lee-Sean Huang and Be Social Change on Monday, May 23rd from 7PM to 9PM forVisual Storytelling: Foundational Skills of Digital Communication & Design.

Visual Storytelling is a broad term that encompasses how we tell stories and convey information visually, whether that is through designing a flyer, poster, website, or data visualization, or producing a video. Contemporary computers and mobile devices make it easier than ever for us to tell our stories visually. This course is an introduction for non-designers and people with limited visual storytelling experience to gain a basic understanding of how to more effectively communicate visually.

We will cover the basic principles of visual communications like focus, hierarchy, composition, the law of thirds, and more. We will start to train our eyes to better understand the visual storytelling that surrounds us, and a leave with resources to help us continue our learning.
