Last week SND conducted three webinars at the Poynter Institute, featuring world-class designers from the Washington Post, Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Villages Daily Sun. These webinars are now archived and available for viewing, along with five previous webinars created in 2017 on design and infographics.

These webinars drew more than 500 participants.
