Adobe InDesign training courses

Adobe InDesign is the industry standard for laying out printed materials by managing page layouts to create posters, leaflets, flyers, brochures, newspapers, magazines, books and eBooks (for print or digital publishing).  Add interactivity, animation, video, and sound to fully engage your audience and interact with Photoshop/Illustrator to bring together your finished article.

Our Introduction course covers the basics that give you the skills to produce professional looking marketing materials.  More experienced users should look to our Intermediate course to learn the best techniques needed to work with and manipulate long documents.

We also provide training for older versions of Adobe InDesign, just call for a course outline.
