Have you ever been puzzled by all those settings on your digital camera or wondered what those HTML codes like <div> really mean?

With AIGA Blue Ridge’s new learning series, Essentials, we’ll discuss and divulge useful how-to information on topics ranging from marketing and photography to web development and social media. The goal of Essentials is to arm you, our members, with knowledge, inspiration and resources to make you a more well-rounded design professional.

And, no, we’re not going to pass out manuals and expect you to learn on your own. Instead, we’ll invite guest presenters to share their ideas and useful tips and techniques with you.
