Instructed by Mara Levin

Infographics are graphic visual representations of information and data that are attractive and compelling. They capture the reader’s attention, present information clearly, and use powerful design and imagery to create a lasting impression. In this 6-week class, Mara Levin, longtime award-winning art director, illustrator, and educator will guide students to discuss the benefits of infographics in communications, review great examples, learn about what makes them work and what to avoid, discover PowerPoint tools and techniques for making infographics and work individually on one or more projects to use for business and/or marketing. Please bring a laptop with a recent version of PowerPoint to class. In her professional work, Mara has created simple to complex internationally published infographics for Fortune 500 companies including Sanofi, Genzyme, Labcorp, and Electric Insurance (a GE company). She is the owner of Access Design & Illustration, a graphic design firm specializing in branded marketing materials for companies of all sizes in healthcare and finance.
