    InDesign Interactive Documents

    These Adobe InDesign Training Courses are designed to give you the skills needed to do exactly what you need to do effectively and quickly. Because these are delivered in-house as onsite Adobe Courses the choice is huge and totally down to you and what you need to do.  Most people are aware that you can create and design spreads and layouts in InDesign but what else can you do with the software.

     

    Once the spread has been created for print or elsewhere you can then add elements from the InDesign Interactive Panel to create eBooks, presentations, slideshows and other online media. You can also use InDesign’s Interactive Panel to design and publish online forms to collect data and other information from perspective clients.

    InDesign Training Course in Bristol

    InDesign Training Course in Bristol

    So this week saw a trip down to the South West to deliver an InDesign Training Course in Bristol. Most people dislike the M5 but personally I like it, it always reminds me of driving down to the South West for holidays with my son. (Enough of the personal stuff). This particular course was bespoke InDesign Training for an engineering company, a regular client of Greta Powell Training who were looking for specific InDesign skills for their bid writers.

     

    InDesign Training Brief

    Briggs & Forrester Group are a well known engineering company whose bid writers wanted to stream line and build on their current InDesign workflow. They were working from existing templates and had a good grasp of the software but felt there was more they could do using InDesign’s automated features.

    InDesign Training Examples

    So exactly what do you get to do on an Introduction to InDesign Training Course? Well in essence you learn the tools, interface, features and functions that you need to create, edit and design documents for print, social media, web or whatever. By whatever, I do mean whatever because InDesign is so versatile it is used for many things. On the Intro Course its used to produce flyers, newsletters, brochures, tender documents. Instead of chatting about it here on the blog we thought you might like to take a look at a few InDesign Training Examples from previous courses.

    PANTONE 16 1546 Living Coral

    There’s always passion for colours here, it’s great to see delegates faces when they see the swatches for the first time in the software and realise the range of colours they have to work with. However unlike last year when we wrote the Vibrant Ultra Violet(18-3838) post virtually on its date release we’re running late with these years appointed pantone. Which is, a luscious orange known as Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral and if you like bright, we do, then you will love this.

    Tailored InDesign Training

    Tailored InDesign Training

    Here at Greta Powell Training we specialise with tailored and bespoke training courses. This particular course was Tailored InDesign Training which was delivered for the administration team at a large school in Worcestershire who we’ve worked with before. Although held as an introduction to InDesign Course the team’s main objectives were editing and updating of templates and current working documents.

     

    The majority of delegates were migrating from Microsoft and completely new to Adobe software so we followed an Introduction to InDesign course outline but tailored the hands on work around the school literature. During the day we designed small flyers, leaflets, event hand-outs and pamphlets.

    Onsite Adobe InDesign Training Midlands

    Onsite Adobe InDesign Training Midlands

    From a business point of view onsite training courses are full of benefits. The first one is they are effective, they are flexible and a cost effective way to train one or more staff members at times and dates to suit you.

     

    What is InDesign?

    In InDesign you work with frames (not in all cases, but mostly) to position text and graphics on one or more pages. It can be used to create numerous documents from flyers to multi-page catalogues that are then sent out for print production or output to digital. But it is much more than that. If you are an author you could use InDesign to export your book to an ePubs format where it can then published on numerous digital readers including Amazon Kindles or perhaps you have a business presentation well, use the interactive elements in InDesign to create your visual presentation. 

     

    The choices are………………………..huge!
