    Course Details

    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.

    Further, Adobe InDesign CC integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe applications and can include native Photoshop and Illustrator files, and in CC you can now centralise your whole workflow through Adobe Bridge. PDF output, XML, and export to GoLive output are also supported, making InDesign the perfect tool for repurposing content.

    In this 1 day course we cover all of the key features of InDesign CC beyond your current knowledge to develop enhanced skills to create attractive, professional page layouts. During the day we also create a print-ready version of a publication that you work on, to ensure that when you have finished the training you are able to cover all aspects of document production you are likely to work on.

    (This course is also available as a 2 day session which provides time to cover all the elements in details and allows time for experimenting and creating completed designs.)

    Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites:

    This course is intended for those who wish to enhance their existing knowledge of InDesign and who work as graphic designers, creative professionals, print professionals, publishers, pre-press professionals, or marketing communications professionals.

    You will need basic experience in using InDesign. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe InDesign CC Introduction 2 Day course.
