Topic: DEI considerations in publications & graphic design
Register for our CPRS members-only Lunch & Learn.
When creating design work for publications and campaigns, society often accepts type and image without reflecting on subliminal messaging. Visuals are very influential and as communicators, we must be mindful and intentional. Calvin Jones, multimedia services lead with the Office of the Auditor General of British Columbia, will speak on how to approach image and type in graphic design work from a Diversity and Inclusion perspective. He will speak to potential unintended biases and best practices in graphic design work, especially when considering publications and campaigns. He will also offer some resources to help us. A moderated 10-15 mins Q&A session will follow.
