Master the basics for more effective communications
No matter what channel you use to communicate your message--print, web, social media, you will communicate it more effectively if you know how to use the basic tools of writing and design. This book will help you learn them, no matter what your software or starting skill level.
Most people who work on communication creation in churches have no training in design, layout, typography, and many related skills they need to do a good job. Training material is not easy to find because many of the materials currently available on communication design and related areas, require the use of expensive, advanced software and teach a secular, image-heavy approach that doesn't always fit the needs of the church audience.
This book provides basic training that can help every church communicator, even those with no previous graphic arts training design, write for, and manage a church communication ministry.
This book is not a how-to on a particular software, but about the basic design and communication principles that form the foundation of effective communication creation. This book is a scanned reprint of Yvon Prehn's earlier book, How to use your computer to create Better Bulletins, Newsletters, and More!
The scanned quality is not the greatest, but it is all that we have at this time. I decided to publish it anyway because there is no material like this available for church communicators and the skills taught are essential.
All the examples in the book are from church communications and the advice is practical and Bible-inspired
