Why Her Graphics
are Better than Your Graphics

There was a time when Instructional Designers didn’t need to worry about graphics.  Among other things, the skills and tools were highly specialized, which meant that writers wrote and graphic artists did graphics.  

No more.  

Today, almost every authoring tool contains a graphic drawing component, and your boss knows it.  Hire a graphic artist?  You’ve got to be kidding me.  Why can’t you do it yourself??  Of course, there are a number of reasons why you shouldn’t have non-graphical people doing their own graphics, but if you think that your boss will have a change of heart and hire a professional graphic designer to help with your project, you may be making a big mistake.  

It would be better for you to learn a few reasons why her graphics are better than your graphics, and take the steps needed to make your graphic images appear more professional.   

In this presentation, I will offer a number of very simple tips that can push your graphics up a level or two, and as a result, perhaps your graphics will be just as good ? or even better ? than her graphics!
