    What will I learn?

The course starts at the beginning by showing you how to set up a new document for print & web using document setup such as margins and printers marks (bleed and slug)


    It then shows how to build the document by adding frames, text and artwork to create professional looking documents based on the principles of good design. You will find out how to work with text, make it thread (flow) through one or more frames, create styles for accurate and consistent type and add artwork (Vector and Raster).


    During the InDesign Course you work with and understand the role that grids, guides and baseline grids play in the design process and how they all combine to produce beautiful laid out documents destined for print, digital and social media. And as with everything at the end you learn how to publish the document to either digital or print.
