Course Description

The aim of this course is to teach you to use InDesign like a creative professional. Learn all of the best practises for working in InDesign so you feel 100% confident in creating new work, always know which tool or feature to use, and never waste time doing things the long way.
Adobe InDesign is one of the three core applications created by Adobe and will prove to be an essential tool in all sorts of design projects. Which is why it's a must know for any Graphic Designer and mastering the software in and out will be extremely valuable when it comes to creating commercial work.

More about Adobe InDesign:
  • InDesign is the industry-leading page design and layout design application which allows you to work across desktop and mobile devices.
  • It's ability to handle long documents with dozens or even hundreds of high resolution images without any lag or compromise on quality is unrivaled by any piece of software.
  • InDesign's real strength lies in its immensely detailed typographic features, which allow users to refine the copy they work with to the smallest details.

Paul Avan


A closer look at what you will learn:
  • First of we will start with the basics, so you feel totally at ease with the interface, settings preferences and creating documents.
  • The next three chapters are all about introducing you to all of the brilliant tools and features in InDesign. Including Image & Text Frames, using Pages, choosing Fonts and Formatting Text.
  • Then we move onto creating layouts, drawing, how to work with Swatches, Effects, Blend Modes, Grids and more!
  • Once you know how to design a layout you can start to learn about compositional techniques, this is where the course presents a unique learning opportunity.
  • The more complex features in InDesign are explained in the final three chapters of the course, so by then you will already be extremely familiar and comfortable with the tools/interface and feel confident and ready to master the more advanced techniques. These chapters include Mastering Styles, Advanced Text Features and Handling Assets and much more.

"Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with this course and thought that it was very well laid out. For instance, Martin puts a few of the more challenging subject matters pretty far into the course, so that you've already built confidence with all of the basics and even a few simpler but advanced techniques. Plus, Martin also reiterates a lot of previous lessons throughout new ones -- just calling attention back to them and reusing -- so everything sinks in very nicely and becomes part of your workflow."

Great course! I learned a lot about InDesign and the instructor's explanations were clear and to the point.

The course is very well-thought-out and systematic, the explanations are clear and thoughtful, and the instructor also gives many useful and creative tips. Very highly recommended!

I appreciate that this instructor put a great deal of work into this course to help students learn and understand the techniques needed to make InDesign projects successfully. His examples and explanation of paragraph styles and design work has totally advanced my understanding and ability to put that understanding to work in InDesign at my present place of employment, which just so happens to be a print shop where we design and print projects for customers. Taking this course has helped me expand what I can do and advance in my present position. I learned a lot from this instructor.

Martin is a fantastic teacher. I learned more than expected and always felt encouraged to try out techniques. I was brand-new to InDesign, and I learned enough in Martin's course to create a text-and-graphics-laden book quickly and efficiently. Martin's thorough course helped me avoid time-consuming beginner mistakes, and the structure makes it easy for me to go back and get a refresher when I need it. Many thanks to Martin!

This was a very comprehensive course. Martin explained everything in an easy to understand manner. I was able to go from not knowing anything at all about InDesign to designing study guides for my company. Thank you, Martin!

The instructor clearly has a passion and deep knowledge about the topic - he also goes through the material logically and comprehensively.

After completing Martin's Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator courses,I knew straight away that he was the right teacher to help learn about InDesign and grow as a Designer.So much insight and experience of the Adobe applications. Thanks Martin.

This was a great class, I learned some things that I didn't know about InDesign that made editing more efficient. Martin is a great teacher, and good at explaining things.

Teacher speaks slowly so it is very easy to follow. Exercices are good prepared.

My acqusition has been increasing during the course! The designer (owner of course ) has really good exprerience and is a good teacher!

I wanted to learn how to use InDesign and this did a great job! I love the interactive portion and the variety of topics covered.

Liking it so far! I wish some things were repeated after each section, but other than that, great.
