Whether you’re a designer who needs to boost their confidence with InDesign, a professional marketer who knows about branding but nothing about InDesign or a complete beginner looking to develop an awareness of the design world and some InDesign skills, these books are written for you.
In Working from an InDesign template, designer and trainer Peter Bone shows you how to create the six documents that you can see displayed in Customer Images (above this text). In an attempt to mirror a typical design project, the templates, images and text are provided where necessary for you to import. As you work through the book, creating increasingly complex documents, the skills and approaches you learn will build upon each other and you'll discover that your use of InDesign becomes increasingly intuitive.
How to create all the documents you see here, starting with the most simple and working through to the most complex: two adverts, a flyer, a poster, a double sided leaflet and a concertina (or z-fold) leaflet.
How to work with images, including how to import them and use basic resizing and repositioning controls.
How to edit text, from making simple amendments through to applying Paragraph and Character Styles, and discover the best practice for dealing with text that is too long to fit in a document.
There are also some brief notes giving you an overview of InDesign, an understanding of how other programs are used with it, and some essential technical information on vector and bitmap images, resolution, bleeds and creating pdfs.
Featuring 7 exercises and containing over 9000 words and 170 images, this book should take between 1 - 2 hours to work through.
