Adobe InDesign Essential Training

This two-day course in InDesign will help you create beautiful but also functional print and web layouts.

  • Place and format your text with the use of toolboxes

  • Import, create and format tables, figures, illustrations and charts

  • Design attractive and functional posters

  • Create professional layouts for your CV or motivation letter

  • Export problem-free PDFs according to the specifications of the printer

During these two days we will dive in to real design challenges so you can practice the theory.
