It’s the first day of classes at my college, and as stressed as I was about getting everything ready by today, I find myself much more relaxed than I thought I would be. It’s so nice to see familiar student faces on campus; the whole college just feels more alive. It’s a nice reminder of why we do what we do.

As we start off a new school year, April and I would love to see what you’ve been working on. Whether it’s new signage, a new marketing campaign, or, in the case of today’s post, a new flyer to try to recruit students for a library advisory board. Jess Burkhardt, Public Services Librarian at DeSales University’s Trexler Library created today’s featured design. Here’s what she had to say about it:

We’re hoping this year is our first with a Student Advisory Board – but first we have to generate interest.  I created this flyer with Adobe Illustrator.  One of the things I learned in this creation process was that Google Images provides users the opportunity to search by usage rights.  This was a huge help to me – significant time was saved because my poster imagery was pulled right from Google Images as it was “labeled for reuse.”

Fonts used include Dream Orphans (larger text) and Lao UI (smaller text). You can find the original Illustrator version of this flyer on the Librarian Design Share Google Drive.
