Secret Knowledge of Poster Design
Part 1 - Working with Text and Images
In this segment of Secret Knowledge of Poster Design, instructor Noah Kleiman demonstrates the basics of using Scribus, a free/open source desktop publishing program. This half-hour lesson covers what you need to know to layout a basic poster. You can watch just this segment and consider yourself ready to make posters. Other segments cover refinements and present useful resources for graphic design elements.
Installation instructions and downloads for Scribus (which we don't cover in this program) can be found at http://www.scribus.net
The screencast for this video was recorded live at TaborSpace in Portland, Oregon on May 1st 2014. It's from a 2-hour presentation called Secret Knowledge of Poster Design. The goal of this workshop is to give working artists, musicians, and creative business owners the ability to make professional quality posters and promotional graphics. That's what Secret Knowledge does. We're a nonprofit agency. Find us online at http://www.secretknowledge.org
