  1. A church social media graphic

For each of these sample projects, the author walks the reader through the process of analyzing the audience, what appeals to them, and the call to action.

As the author walks through both of these projects, he using graphics with markups to detail exactly how to create similar designs.

At the end of the ebook, he also provides information on basic design principles including alignment, font choice and readability, design hierarchy, open space and simplicity, and using grids.
