Visual Style Inspiration: Creative Ideas for Slides and eLearning


Get ready for creative inspiration. Be prepared to expand your horizons. In this session, we'll explore the components of visual design and how to use these elements to create exciting visual themes or styles. We'll look at visual design trends, break down a number of different styles and discuss the characteristics of each. Then we'll analyze the underlying message that the style communicates. The visual theme you select should meet the needs of your audience, your content and your instructional and messaging goals.

Whether you create the graphics yourself, work with a graphic designer, or manage a team, it pays to have a visual style as your framework. You don't need any graphic skills to gain new insights and benefit from this session.

Participants will:

  1. Discuss the importance of intentional design practives
  2. Identify the audience groups and instructional content appropriate for a variety of visual themes
  3. Discuss how to apply the characteristics of specific visual design approaches to improve the effectiveness of eLearning and training slides
