    Let's face it. This gig asks us to wear many hats, and Graphic Designer might be the trickiest one to pull off. 

    Kerning. Pantone. Vector format. The art of graphic design introduces its own world of rules and vocabulary, and in many cases it can sound like a foreign language. Join SMPS Cincinnati for an inspiring education session that breaks down some of the latest graphic design trends that can be easily executed by a Jack- or Jill-of-all-trades and design novices.
