Bespoke InDesign CS3 - 2 Day Intermediate Overview

InDesign Logo and Intermediate 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 cover all of the key features of InDesign CS3 you’ll need to create attractive, professional page layouts. Over the 2 days 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 1 day course which covers most of the basics of the 2 day course but allows less 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 CS3 Introduction 2 Days course.
