Adobe InDesign is the industry-standard page layout program. In this class, you'll learn to use InDesign to produce a variety of single-page and multi-page documents. You'll set and format type, work with paragraph styles, import images from Illustrator and Photoshop, define and apply color, apply graphic effects, create PDFs, and package files for printing. Classroom exercises include creating a simple 4-color brochure and getting it press-ready, building a multi-page catalog, and creating a newspaper.
This class is hosted on Canvas. Students will have access to instructional videos and projects which they can complete at their own pace. Class meetings via Zoom will give students the opportunity to participate in instructor's virtual office hours to ask questions and receive guidance. All students will receive video chat instructions prior to the first day of class.
Students must have their own Mac or PC laptop with a recent version of Adobe InDesign installed (current pricing and the cancellation policy can be found at https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html).
Though you can use a trackpad, a mouse is strongly recommended!
"Fabulous instructor! I'd take another class with him. Answered all class questions, offered to help students after class if they needed extra explanation, and made it an enjoyable learning environment." - Valeka C, summer 2018 student
