About This Class

In this class I will show you the fundamentals of Indesign with a focus on using it for print and editorial design.

The course consists of two parts, whereof the first one is mainly theoretical and the second one is where we will create our class project.

This class is designed for absolute beginners, but even experienced Indesign users might benefit from it.

We will have a close look at Indesign’s interface and cover the most important tools for creating layouts and working with typography, images, shapes, colors and paths. At the end we will export our documents as PDFs.
