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.”
