After completing several projects within Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, it’s important to make use of another power asset within the suite. Adobe InDesign is the premiere publication design software. This program gives designers the ability to produce interactive documents, animated presentations, standard PDFs, forms, books, e-PUBs, and more. It allows you to use assests from other program’s such as Illustrator and Photoshop as well as design within the program itself. You can format text using both Character and Paragraph level styles with full character rules in place throughout the document.
You will be utilizing this program for future projects, so it’s essential you become familiar with it. You will be starting out following an official Adobe Training before we begin our projects. Be sure to complete these activities in order (you will need headphones).
