About This Session

Organizations that put design first can triple their annual revenue growth. But not all design is created equal. Our lives are now oversaturated with visual content, from social media platforms to streaming television networks to GIFs and memes. It’s more necessary than ever that brands embrace quality, custom design so they can stand out from the competition. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn strategies for recognizing quality design and develop high-engagement content for your organization. This event unites the authors of two dynamite new books on design and visual communication for audiences who aren’t just designers, but marketers, brand leaders, and communications professionals. Scott Berkun, author of How Design Makes the World, will be interviewed by Strategic Content Summit host Amy Balliett, author of Killer Visual Strategies: Engage Any Audience, Improve Comprehension, and Get Amazing Results Using Visual Communication

You’ll walk away knowing how to: 

  • Identify the characteristics of quality design and explain what makes them different.
  • Explain why good design matters and become an ambassador for quality design within your organization. 
  • Ask better, more critical questions of the marketing content you interact with.
