The Basics of Graphic Design for Authors

November 11, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Stefanie Graphic

Eye-catching graphic design is a great way to snag your reader’s attention when they’re scrolling through their social media feed. Whether it’s with a Facebook or Twitter banner, a quote card from your latest book, or a header for your newsletter, the right graphic design can strengthen your author brand and help you put your best foot forward. But paying a graphic designer can be extremely expensive.

Stefanie London will help you navigate the basics of graphic design so you can start to manage your visual brand independently. In this workshop, she will take you through the basic principals of graphic design and colour theory, pitfalls to avoid and how to create graphics that reflect you and your stories more accurately. She’ll also explore some popular design programs including free and affordable options, how to source images, and when you should invest in hiring a designer versus taking the DIY route.




Stefanie London is a self-taught graphics enthusiast, a USA Today Bestselling author and 2016 Romantic Book of the Year finalist with the Romance Writers of Australia. Originally from Melbourne, she now lives in Toronto with her very own hero and is currently in the process of doing her best to travel the world. She frequently indulges in her passions for good coffee, lipstick, romance novels and zombie movies.
