When designing any poster or presentation slides, it is also important to understand how to use colors to attract your audience and be mindful about what colors could convey in different cultures. In this unit, it is not an instruction to design something, but it is what suitable to do in choosing colors. Please keep in mind that, however, there is no fix rule for applying colors into your design.
If you have come this far to this unit, you are able to design presentation slides or beautiful frames for yourself, family, and friends. However, to make your design more informative, you need “charts”. You could still use texts to make it informative, but the reason why we are learning this course is to create an infographic to attract your audience. So, it is impossible to not talk about charts. In this unit, you will learn different types of charts and how to create one.
