Adobe InDesign Essentials


Learn how designers create professional industry-standard artwork for web and print.

Adobe InDesign is the leading design layout programme used by graphic design professionals worldwide. It works seamlessly with Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat providing an integrated design environment. It can also open files previously created in QuarkXPress*

On day one you will learn how to build a document layout, place text and images and use colour to create a document layout. Day two will explore more advanced layout and typographical controls, clipping paths, using libraries, creating multipage documents for production and printing. This course will give you an excellent grounding in Adobe InDesign.

Throughout the two days the emphasis is on practical, hands-on learning with a series of exercises designed to consolidate new skills and build confidence.

Perfect choice! Classroom great! Fantastic people and facilities! They were very welcoming everyday, so I looked forward to the course very much! Thanks again for a great course - will in touch again later!


A very thorough introduction to InDesign, as a novice I now feel I have more than adequate knowledge to use the program successfully in my work.
