Visual Storytelling 101 

In today’s world, PR pros are asked to wear many hats – including graphic designer and videographer. You likely didn’t get a degree in every skill you’re required to rock, but don’t let that stop you from jumping in with both feet. With some basic know-how, your messages can become visual magic. And that’s where PRSA Northeast Wisconsin’s VisualStorytelling 101 comes in!

PR pros who attend this three-hour, in-the-trenches training will learn to create graphics and video that look beautiful, download quickly, and contribute to a user-friendly interface experience. Top industry instructors from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College will teach you the most important basics of videography and graphic design. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to show off your organization in the best light – and feel confident that you can pull it off.

Don’t miss this chance to share new ideas, master new concepts and find inspiration to visually tell the story of your brand! Be sure to bring your smart phone and laptop for this hand-on experience. And plan to stay for lunch and networking afterwards!
