InDesign & Photoshop Bespoke Training...

The trainer squeezed in a huge amount over the 3 days.  She worked with us to deliver a bespoke session that will support upcoming projects.  We know this is a continous learning process but now we have the tools to build with and move forward collectively.

This is a hugely knowledgeable trainer who provided lots of practice opportunities.  I would recommend this training for other teams looking to build skills with both software and design.  We have become confident in a very short time.

Thank you for all your help, we are already planning what to do next time.
