Adobe InDesign Training Introduction Course...

This InDesign Course is designed to familiarise you with the toolbox, panels, Window menu and workspace by working with various practice projects.  You will learn how to set up grids for accurate and precise layout of InDesign objects then learn how to create and edit character and paragraph styles for consistent type styles across a document.  

On this InDesign course we also focus on the practicalities of the software and show you how to edit and work with documents designes 'inherited' from former colleagues, how to deal with 'text flows' and 'misbehaving' images.  All of our Adobe training including the InDesign courses  provide you with the skills to produce high quality visuals using a hands on approach.  In addition to the practical side of the software we include design techniques and show how to  typography for clear communication, colour harmony for impact and graphics for beautiful looking documents.  Then the day naturally concludes with getting the document out to print, either as an InDesign document, PDF or via Export.

InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator?...

This InDesign Course incorporates a very brief overview of Photoshop and Illustrator describing the part that these two play in the look of the overall InDesign document.  It demonstrates the best practice for working with a variety of image formats and vector shapes and how the three peices of software work together.  This section is optional...

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.
