Using the Power of Word to Design Like a Pro

Who needs professionals when you can “steal” their design techniques? Let us show you how to pull everything together and design like a pro to create eye-catching newsletters, documents and brochures using just Word. Yes, Microsoft® Word.

With Using the Power of Word to Design Like a Pro, you’ll learn how to unleash the power of Word (versions 2003 and 2007) to make your newsletters, reports, and everything you create look more professional.

In the 75-minute audio recording, presented by Lori Fields of Fields On-line Training and Communications, you will discover:
  • 3 important secrets to making design tools work in Word
  • The key to looking at design with a more critical eye
  • 6 specific looks you can “steal” from the pros
  • Tips for matching your design’s “image” and “mood” to your audience
  • 3 mistakes that make your documents look amateurish
Using the Power of Word to Design Like a Pro shows you the Word 2003 toolbars that let you position objects where you want them. We also show where these tools are in Word 2007.

Lori then gives examples of what goes into a good design – and tells you step-by-step how to recreate these designs in Word. From Headlines and Titles to Body Text and Graphics, you’ll find out how to develop a more critical eye for the pros’ designs – and yours.

Using the Power of Word to Design Like a Pro brings you shortcuts that will help you work faster – plus rules that will make your documents “friendlier.” And the easier your document is to read, the more likely your readers will respond the way you want them to!
