Bespoke InDesign CS3 - 2 Day Advanced Overview

InDesign Logo with Advanced Course Delegates

Adobe InDesign CS3 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 CS3 integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe applications and can include native Photoshop and Illustrator files, and in CS3 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 2 day course we provide current users the ability to hone their skills and move their knowledge of Adobe InDesign CS3 to an advanced level. Using the skills learned at introduction or intermediate level delegates will create complex documents and work with a variety of palettes and tools to further understand the capabilities of this high-end design application.

(This course is also available as a 1 day course which provides sufficient time to cover the features in a more complete manner and allows more time for experimenting and creating completed designs.)

Justine Rich, Capita, InDesign - 2 Day Introduction

I had no knowledge of InDesign prior to this training, now I feel like I can use it with confidence. The course has equipped me with new skills and knowledge that has made me genuinely excited to get back to work and use this software.

Sam Wright, Industrial Tomography Systems, InDesign Introduction - 2 Days

I have never used Adobe InDesign before and the course and instructor explained everything, pausing and helping if anyone needed. Nothing was a problem to him!

Molly Henderson, HSS Hire, InDesign Introduction - 2 Days

Excellent course, excellent trainer. Learnt so much. We covered lots of things I had tried to do before with much difficulty. The training made things simple, I will be much more efficient now!

Laura Millar, FCA, Adobe InDesign - Two Day Introduction

Got everything out the course I wanted to. The trainer was great, really knew his stuff and helped to cover the areas we would be using in our jobs. Fantastic!

Chad Doyle, Stockport Council, InDesign - 4 Day Masterclass

Excellent, answered all of my questions, now familiar with all of the shortcuts and tools I hoped to be familiar with. A great introduction that will save me a lot of time.

Robyn Wyatt, NHS Christie, InDesign - 2 Day Bespoke

It was good fun, informative and I feel like I learnt a lot. It has also made me want to do more courses.

Stephanie Razis, Salamanca, InDesign - 2 Day Introduction

Brilliant two days. I was sceptical about how much we would learn in two days but now feel like I am definitely ready and eager to use InDesign on my own. The facilities were great and the class size perfect and it is brilliant that we receive a book to help us through post-course use of the software. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Emma Bedford, Wem Town Hall Trust, InDesign - Two Day Introduction

The trainer had an extremely high level of knowledge about InDesign. He was very thorough in all his explanations and clear when providing any instructions. I feel very confident in the information I have been given and now feel able to go away and use InDesign. Excellent trainer.

Maria Juszczyszyn, Aldi, InDesign Introduction - Two Days

The training was excellent, well paced and all of our questions were answered. There was time at the end to put into practice what had been learnt and ask further questions or queries. Prepared handouts were are clear and useful for future reference.
