    How does the Onsite Adobe InDesign Training in Rugby work?


    What will I learn on this InDesign Training?This Introduction to InDesign starts with the very basics of the software where you will begin with a full overview of InDesign’s tools and features.


    You will learn how to edit existing documents, create new ones from scratch and find out how to design a variety of different spreads and layouts using layout guides such as grids and guides. On the bespoke InDesign Courses you design documents and content such as flyers, handouts, company reports, annual & financial reports, tenders, multi page documents etc. Once the design is complete the course shows how to work with the Preflight panel & Package options to export them for the printers as professional layouts.
