InDesign CS5

Professional Page Design and Layout

InDesign is the industry-standard page design program. With precise control over all page elements, whether typography or imported imagery, this program is the professional's favourite. Many Quark users have migrated to InDesign because of the tight integration with sister professional software Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Illutsrator. From precisely designed multi-page books to corporate identity or interactive brochures, this is essential software training for anyone serious about their role in the design or publishing industry. Anything esle comes a poor second.

NEED A MIX? WE CAN CREATE: A MIXED SOFTWARE COURSE THAT COMBINES INDESIGN WITH OTHER SOFTWARE COURSES; A TOTALLY CUSTOMISED COURSE; OR MIX IT WITH A DESIGN WORKSHOP. WHATEVER BLEND YOU WANT, YOU'VE GOT IT.
