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.
