Visual communication is a skill that, although many of us don't have, we all find a need for every now and again. Whether it's for promoting an event, displaying information, or a creating a poster, something is always cropping up that requires a bit of creative finagling. So if you're not a designer, and don't have the money to pay for one (we are expensive!), I'll share a handful of tips and themes that you can employ to help take even the most visually-challenged design and turn it into an effective project. This won't be a technical talk about how to use Illustrator or Photoshop, but more of a high-level collection of ways to approach a design project.
