Produce your own leaflets, posters, books.
InDesign is an essential tool for design firms, ad agencies, magazines, newspapers, book publishers, and freelance designers around the world. Get a thorough introduction to the core features InDesign at the Essentials Workshop and then add to your skills with "Next Step".
You will be shown how to assemble text and images into multipage documents that can be published in print, on the web, and in many other electronic formats.
Discover the core elements that make up any InDesign project, whether simple or complex: pages, text frames, and images. Place and flow text, and set character and paragraph level attributes.
Most documents need photos or graphics. Learn about image placement, cropping, scaling, and framing. Discover the efficient use of rulers and guides, and how to easily navigate between pages.

The Start Here workshop assumes no previous InDesign experience. Since this is a course about Desktop publishing you should have an idea of what you wish to produce. This may be a simple leaflet or a long complex book. InDesign handles both with ease. In the latter part of the day we will develop your own ideas so that you have the confidence to finish your leaflet, or magazine and get it published.
The Next Step Workshop assumes you know the basics of Text and Image placement, Paragraph styles and you know how to create a basic pdf. We will look in depth at Tables, Forms, Interactive PDF's, Glyphs, Object Styles, Table of Contents and more.
If you do not already own InDesign software a 7 day trial copy is available free of charge. Computers are also available.
