Adobe InDesign is a premier multi-document layout and design program used for cross-media publishing. It has set standards with its type and table controls, editable transparency effects, layers, crash protection and integration with Photoshop and Illustrator files. Files can be exported for print or the Web directly from InDesign. Students will create grid systems, a two- to four-page spread, brochures, newsletters, business cards, advertising and promotion materials. Importing and exporting of files, professional type and production techniques will be covered.
