The Objectives

  • To become more efficient and produce faster results using more advanced tools in InDesign
  • To learn about the constraints of print production

InDesign training: editing existing templates for brochures, techniques for creating bespoke artwork, integration with other programmes such as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, preflight for print production, workflow for multi-page documents

Trish says:

So glad we found Clare Davey at digi-training to come to our work place to deliver small group training. We searched lots of different training options and nothing seemed to suit our needs and budget. Then we found digi-training! Clare has endless patience and a wealth of experience and knowledge. Can’t recommend her highly enough.
