Quick paced, basic overview of InDesign layout technique, with really good information on re-creating a layout that you see somewhere else (magazine, for example). I found 3 really good tips within the lessons, including how to do illuminated drop caps, re-creating the text style in a photo, inside an InDesign document, and also, creating vectors out of text in an InDesign file. Probably not a course for a true beginner, but more for someone who has been introduced to InDesign and played around a bit. I gained value from the course.
great class
