    So this InDesign Course is suitable for complete beginners?


    Yes it is and it’s also great for those with a limited knowledge who would like to build InDesign further into their skill-set. You don’t need any previous experience of graphic design software to attend this course apart from using a computer (MAC or PC).


    InDesign for Beginners Training, what will you learn?


    You start at the beginning by creating new documents (including bleed, slug, margins & columns) and will also find out how to edit and update existing documents which may have been inherited from a former person. 


    You then find out how the different elements in InDesign work including colour (when and how to use it) add grids and guides for accurate content placement and understand how typography works. Learn how to work with features such as Parent Pages & Grids to give your spreads exact positioning, page numbering and positioning in your documents. 


    The course is very hands on and during your InDesign Introduction course you will work with different types of text, placing & flowing text /text frames and learn how to set up styles for type consistency throughout a document /or series of documents. 


    Working with Images, Artwork & Text


    And, of course it goes without saying that you will learn to work with images from Photoshop, Illustrator and external sources. Learn how to wrap text around them and add them to your CC Library. During the InDesign Course you will find out how to purpose documents for print, web and social media and understand the different file formats and processes for output.


    The course also covers design techniques and shows you how to design publications that look both professional and elegant. With this in mind we work with images, shade, gradients and colour to add sheen to your designs and spend time learning about CC libraries and reusable assets.


    InDesign & Interactive PDF’s


    Although we cover more of the Interactive side of InDesign on our Intermediate and advanced course this Intro course does dip it’s toes into InDesign’s interactive side. You will learn how to repurpose content /create new content to publish interactive InDesign documents containing links, video and bookmarks.
