Adobe InDesign is the industry-standard software for producing print publications: books, magazines, brochures, flyers, posters, business cards, documents and even product packaging. You name it, InDesign is always the first and best choice for designers when they want to produce professional-standard design work for print.
This course, aimed at complete beginners to InDesign, will lead you through the process of creating, formatting, proofing, preparing and exporting InDesign documents, ready for sending them straight to the printers. Over 10 concise and structured sessions, and 35 lectures, we'll cover the basics of setting up professional print layouts and working with images, typography, color and effects to create your desired result. We'll also take a look at how features like Masters, Book Files and proofing with Preflight can speed up your workflow and transform you into an InDesign Pro!
To help you along, you'll receive a course handbook, 10 Essential InDesign Skills, which is yours to keep after you've completed the course. You'll also work towards creating your own magazine layout in InDesign and receive pre-prepared, complete magazine templates for you to refer to and use throughout and beyond the course lessons.
