On August 10th, 2012, Sarah Hassaine led a second AUA Network webinar titled “Social Media, Storytelling & Web Design: Tying it All Together.” Her webinar focused on the important factors of designing your organizations site and linking it to various social media sites. Key tips to keep in mind is the mood of your organization’s message, exploring different fonts and typography and most importantly to knowing your audience.
How do you make sure your site is user friendly and attractive? Sarah advises to always remember the five main take-aways:
1. Start with your goals and audiences
2. Pick one or two goals
3. Focus on interesting and effective use
4. Empower your audiences
5. Storytelling is intergral to human culture
