Welcome! This month, I’ll be discussing visual social media. This is a huge movement within social media and I hope that my posts will offer some insight into the trend and how it can impact your library.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Inkscape, the free and open source vector design application complete with plugins, layers, path manipulation and more. The one issue with Inkscape is not an Inkscape issue at all.
Late last year, I took all of my presentations that I have ever given on design, technology, libraries, branding and related topics, and I made them public and licensed for re-use and re-mixing under a creative commons-attribution license.
I decided that I'd introduce some of my favorite open source design tools here for librarians who want to find powerful, free tools for design. This list covers graphic design, layout, web design, content management and some other topics.
