Sometimes the most basic information can be the hardest thing to represent graphically. This flyer was created to promote our regular library class offerings. Like a lot of the pieces I make, I utilized more than one Microsoft Office program. I created the chart in Word because I prefer it over Excel for building charts with a bunch of text, and then I copied the chart to a Publisher document so that I could play with the colors, lines, and layer the images, which is way easier to do in Publisher than Word. I’m not going to lie; it took me forever to decide on the colors and to fit all that I wanted to say in the limited space to make it a half-page document (color printer guilt), but now that it’s done, we can revise and reuse it each semester.
