InDesign – Essentials
Nov 25 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

This course runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th November.

This is the first in our InDesign course series.

It provides instruction on how to create professional-looking documents for both print & web download.

In this 2-day course, participants will:

create documents and document presets; create and place text; place graphics and other InDesign pages; and work with colour swatches. They will explore position elements precisely by using guides and the Control panel; and use master pages.

They’ll thread text between text frames, add jump lines, and use columns in text frames; use the Paragraph Formatting controls; use Find/Change to replace formatting; and create and edit paragraph and character styles.

They’ll position text in text frames and format frame edges; place Photoshop images in documents, set text wrap, modify graphics, and nest frames; group objects and manipulate objects within a group; and create layers and assign objects to them.

They’ll print documents, create print presets, and export documents to PDF; and prepare documents for commercial printing. They’ll create and edit vector paths; create and edit clipping paths; and wrap type on a path.

They’ll also manually resize type; use Quick Apply; create nested styles and GREP styles; create path-based text wraps and convert type to outlines; and precisely control leading, hyphenation, justification, and horizontal spacing.

They will create, modify, and format tables; import Microsoft Word documents and map Word styles to InDesign styles; add headers and footers to tables; merge table cells; add editorial notes; and create table styles.

Adobe® InDesign CC 2018 will be used in class. It is much less applicable to earlier versions of the software.

This course runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Wednesday 4th & Wednesday 11th December.

 

It is a 14 hour workshop – held over 2 sessions of 7 hours each.

 

In this day & age, everyone seems to be desktop publishing – media & advertising agencies, schools & hospitals, government departments, small businesses, not-for-profit & community organisations, etc. Unfortunately though, many people have found themselves in a designer’s role without any formal training and may feel overwhelmed by it all.

 

In this 2-day course, participants will learn:

the fundamentals of good design and how it enhances readability and effectiveness of communication; purpose & visual literacy; document layout, typography and colour; corporate identity & publications.

 

Principles will be practiced through Adobe® InDesign, Photoshop & Illustrator.
