The "Start Here" workshop assumes no previous InDesign experience. Since this is a course about desktop publishing you should have an idea of what you wish to produce.
This may be a simple leaflet or a long complex book. InDesign handles both with ease. In the latter part of the day, we will develop your own ideas so that you have the confidence to finish your leaflet, or magazine and get it published.
This workshop covers many basic ideas and techniques and is set up in three sections. We will always try and tailor the course to what you or your company need. Wherever possible we will use your own materials, deconstruct them and allow you to put them back together. This class is perfect for people in Sales and Marketing who want to advance their design skills.
