Essential Guide to Branding and Design in your LMS

Design and branding have always mattered at Wisetail. After all, Wisetail began shortly after DVDs of custom training material were found propping up a wobbly table rather than being used. The thought was that if training is delivered in a way that looks and feels like a company’s brand, with an inviting layout, then people would actually use it. 

In this guide we will take you through:

  • Why design matters
  • Design thinking priciples
  • Best Practices for design in your LMS
  • Design resources to get you started
