Testimonials

Impressive course! Many thanks also for the InDesign Shortcuts & Preference Guide which will be very useful and are greatly appreciated

Tom Gilling, Vividesigns, InDesign - 4 Day Masterclass

Very well organised and structured everything seemed to flow perfectly. Explanations were clear and set at a steady pace that was easy to follow. Instructor very knowledgeable, there were no questions unanswered.

Jasmine Gould, Integralis, InDesign - 2 Day Introduction

Excellent explanation, professional and friendly approach. Very clear in explanations. Overall an excellent trainer.

Andrew Shelmerdine, Vinci Academy, InDesign - 2 Day Advanced

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

Training is/was comprehensive and a good overview for the beginner. Good outline of course and structured day's learning.

Courtney Jones, SPS, InDesign Introduction - 2 Days

We had an excellent instructor for the InDesign course - as someone who had no prior knowledge, he explained everything thoroughly and enthusiastically. I will definitely be back if my training requirements change!

Francesca D’Alessio, Rider Levett Bucknall, Adobe InDesign - Two Day Introduction

The trainer was excellent - she explained everything in depth and gave me enough time to keep up. The content was very useful and I know feel a lot more confident to use InDesign.

Sian Hughes, UKTI, InDesign - 1 Day Introduction

Thanks for a very pleasant and educational 2 days. I think it was especially good because it was a small class which gave very individual training.

Nigel Hopwood, Jacob Jensen Design, InDesign - 2 Day Advanced

To say that this course has revolutionised my design life is an understatement; It will benefit my work certainly but also several projects currently ongoing in my personal life as I am an aspiring writer and food blogger. Fantastic course delivered by an amazing trainer!

Lyndsay Stewart, Next, InDesign - Two Day Introduction

A thoroughly enjoyable course, very useful and brilliantly tailored to our requirements. Have completed two other introductory InDesign courses and this has been the best by far. Would definitely recommend to others.
