About the course:

You might be great in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, but without mastering InDesign you will be struggling to find a job as a graphic designer. This is a crucial tool and skill to have and if you are not familiar with it already, you should start studying right now.

This is a Zero to Hero course divided into 10 chapters. Each chapter is around an hour long to make it easy to digest and practice everything you learn. Make sure you download the Workbook and Exercise Files and also don't forget to do Quiz and the Class Project at the end of this chapter to test yourself.

About InDesign:

Adobe InDesign is the industry-leading page design and layout toolset that lets you work across desktop and mobile devices to create, preflight and publish everything from printed books and brochures to digital magazines, iPad apps, eBooks and interactive online documents. The strength of InDesign lies in its ability of handling long documents with dozens or even hundreds of high resolution images without any sign of delay or slowing down, and also its immensely powerful typographic features that allows users to refine the copy they work with to the last tiny detail.

InDesign offers the most commonly needed typesetting features similarly to other applications but then when you dive deeper you will find a never ending variety of options that can be used to edit text on the most professional level. But above all the reasons why it became the industry standard desktop publishing application is thanks to its time-saving features that allows expert users to be extremely productive and efficient.

In this course we are going to start from the very basics like how to place text and images into a document to complex techniques like how to utilise styles, master pages, how to create automatic table of contents and so much more. The aim is to teach you the best ways of doing everything in InDesign, to make you confident that you will always know which tool or feature to use in every situation.

So what are we waiting for? Let’s get started and master Adobe InDesign!
