About This Class

Bring your creative ideas to life with Adobe InDesign, the professional page layout standard, used by designers and production professionals to design, preflight, and publish a broad range of documents such as brochures, résumés, magazines, books, and more. InDesign allows you to design engaging and attention-grabbing visual documents. This class is designed to get you up and running with Adobe InDesign in one evening. The focus will be on step-by-step instruction along with insider tips and tricks on how to use the most important tools and concepts in InDesign.
