Webinar Recording: Designing Quick Reference Guides

A couple of weeks ago I gave an STC webinar called Designing Quick Reference Guides. This was a general STC webinar, and usually I am not allowed to repost the recording, but due to some audio difficulties, I had to re-record it, and the STC gave me permission to post the re-recording. Here are the files to watch or download the webinar:

    Thanks for the useful material. And for quoting Robin Williams’s The Non-Designer’s Design Book, which is now on my Kindle.

    Wow, not one but two webinars after that weekend. This seriously sweetens my Monday morning. Thanks, I am going to try and listen to them during the day.

    Thanks for the tips, ideas, and suggestions as I prepare my first QRG. My first decision — kindle or paperback for the Robin Williams book. :)

      For the Robin Williams book, you probably want paperback, because there are a lot of images in it. But I don’t have a kindle, so maybe they display well.
