Giving your documents a well-designed, professional look will put you a step ahead in the marketplace cluttered with all kinds of communications. Paragraph and character styles that allow you to format pages of text uniformly, layout features that help you to build alternate size configurations of your document, and various panels that enable you to easily customize both text and graphics; Adobe InDesign CC has all the tools you need to elevate the look of your document and get it out to the people who need to see it, whether it be in print or on the web.  This is a full ½ day and we endeavour to get through as much contact as suits the class.
