Meeting/Event Information

SMPS Seattle | Visual Communication and Proposal Design

July 10, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Virtual - Zoom


Imagine you’re on the selection committee for a high-profile project. You’re excited about what it will mean for your organization, stakeholders and the community. Now, picture yourself sitting at your desk staring at the stack of proposals you need to read, compare, contrast, and score to winnow it down to a shortlist.

Where do you start? Which one do you pick up first? Last? Why?

Wouldn’t you gravitate towards visually appealing, well-organized, and dare I say it potentially “fun” to read proposals?
