Continue your InDesign training and learn to generate stunning page layouts. We will implement many of the tips, tricks and professional shortcuts used by designers.  

Abstract

Objectives:
In this one-day class, we will build off of the foundation set in the InDesign Essentials course and begin to work with color, import and edit graphics, add tables, and add special effects to graphics and text. Discover the power of styles which help you create beautiful layouts, as efficiently as possible. 

Activities:
After a quick refresher of the tool functions, we jump in where we left off with InDesign Essentials. The first tutorial begins with a simple layout, but starts to include more advanced layout features giving your document a more professional feel -- simultaneously reducing the amount of time it takes to make edits and develop new layouts. 

Other topics include how to:
- Work with color gradients / blending modes / transparencies / filters
- Format text with font types / glyphs / spacing / leading / tracking
- Use styles to make changes throughout the document with just a few clicks
- Use layers effectively. 

By the end of this class, you will be able to diagnose and resolve many of the problems one comes across with previously designed documents or templates. Effective communication is invaluable in today's world and InDesign is a powerful tool for creating compelling presentations for your important projects. 

Although this class will be taught using InDesign CC for Windows, the software is identical for the Mac. The instructor will point out any key differences between the Mac and PC.
