Adobe InDesign Training Introduction Course...

This InDesign Course is designed to familiarise you with the look and feel of the software whilst working on a number of different projects. It is very much a hands on course which starts at the beginning showing you how to create and set up documents and prep them for layout using grids and guides.

On this InDesign course we focus on the practicalities of the software and show you how to edit and work with documents designs 'inherited' from former colleagues, how to deal with text flow and work with artwork. During the course you will work with a variety of different layout projects including flyers, newsletters, corporate stationery. .

InDesign Bespoke Training...

The InDesign Course was customised to cover the aspects of design specific to our own forms.  Using actual examples of our products meant that we learned a lot about how to go about this work.  It highlighted several areas where productivity can be improved.

A extremely interesting and useful InDesign Course.  Thank you.
