    InDesign Training Course Work

    One of the things I often get asked about in an initial training email query or voice chat is what would I expect to be able to do or be able to achieve after a days training. It’s a difficult one to answer really as the results are so broad. It’s normally down to you and what you want to achieve in the InDesign Training Course Work?

     

    Anyway I thought it might be helpful if I showed some examples of work from delegates on some of the courses and I’m going to start it off with a newsletter spread designed by a delegate on the InDesign Introduction Course.

     

    Creating a basic newsletter

    It should be said that this delegate had virtually no InDesign skills whatsoever at the beginning of the course. This was designed just after lunch using the tools and techniques covered in the morning session. Although this was an introduction to InDesign Course the object of the training was to produce a regular newsletter for her company that could be sent out to their clients.

    How was this designed?

    This is a basic design but what makes it look nice is the fact that she bothered to match her colour scheme to her images and sub headings. We didn’t go deeply into typography or styles but created two simple styles, one heading and some body text. She then found an image she liked and matched the colours to that. There was a grid used for accurate placement in this image. You can find out more about the InDesign Introduction either from the courses tab at the top of the page or by clicking here.
