  • Bespoke CC Design Combo 3 Day Essentials

    Course Details

    This course is an introduction to the core essentials of the Adobe CC design applications of InDesign CC, Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and Adobe Bridge over a 3 day session. The duration of this course will enable an all round grounding in the most important aspects of these 3 applications to your design workflow but will not allow a fully comprehensive introduction to all aspects of each application.

    Adobe InDesign CC is the page layout application of choice for many users. It contains a host of advanced text, colour, print and layout features not found in any other application that can be applied to text and objects It also boasts an interface similar to Adobe’s other leading design applications and so is intuitive for users of these applications. In this 3 day course we cover all of the key features of InDesign CC you’ll need to create attractive, professional page layouts.

    Adobe Photoshop CC is the standard image editing application used by the majority of design professionals throughout the world. During this 3 day course you will learn the basics of image manipulation and creation with this powerful tool. Learning how to create accurate selections to modify with Photoshop’s tools will form a key part of the training (including Quick Masks), as will understanding layers, using colour and transparency, and adjusting images to improve their quality/suitability for their intended publication.

    Adobe Illustrator CC is the latest version of Adobe's industry standard vector-based illustrating tool and with the likely demise of Freehand it looks set to retain its crown for some time. It is used by graphic designers throughout the world to create a vast variety of different media including illustrations, package designs, leaflets & flyers, web graphics & animations, notice boards, billboards, and many other graphic objects. By the end of this 3 day course for beginners, you will have learnt about the key Adobe Illustrator CC features and tools that you need to begin designing attractive graphic designs and art work.

    Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites:

    This course is intended for designers, pre-press professionals, architects, production managers, marketing staff, small business owners, web designers, and anyone else who wishes to master the Creative Cloud.

    You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media.
