Graphic Design Workshops

Creating Quick and Easy Graphics for Social Media consists of a presentation and a practical workshop held each semester at UCD, as part of the Library's Research Services series of workshops. The sessions are run by Catherine Bodey and Josh Clark of UCD Library Outreach.

A presentation includes an overview of best practice for creating graphics, along with information about correct attribution and Creative Commons licensing issues.

The practical workshop deals with free web-based graphic design creators, focussing on Canva, complete with practical examples and exercises for participants.
