Whoaa! I finally released my class! So happy I have to share! Hope you 'll enjoy it! Happy Xmas to you all! Class referral link here :)

Class topic: Design : Adobe In Design - Create a minimal Calendar

Class description:

With this the class you’ll be able to create and export to professional printers your custom Calendar.

I'll take you from draft to final artwork, teach you how to create a calendar with tables, set the layout, duplicate and edit the layout for all the months; importing your images and exporting it as a pdf for professional printing.

Calendar is a good medium for promoting your art, photography, or just to give something sweet to your followers, friends or family.

The Class is going to be divided in:

1 Setting the document size guides and bleed

2 Create the basic layout

3 Importing the first Image or create a simple quote, create the January calendar using tables.

4 Editing ,choosing colors and fonts ad repeat for all months

5 Exporting for professional printer (generic profile)

6 Exporting for in house printing

7 Exporting as a Jpeg and sharing your artwork on skillshare

8 Final thoughts

Class Project:

Your project is to complete at least one page /month (January) and share your artwork on skillshare.

Remember that all the images that you are going to use need to be in high-resolution; attached you can find an example.

I included a pdf with all the steps too, as a resume, an Indesign Document, as well as an idml file for opening the document in previous versions (from CS4 and above) and a 2017 Calendar as a reference. Download and unzip.
