Have loved Erica since I was a baby designer. She is a great educator, and even though I have been using ID for about 8 years, I just changed from CS6 to CC. This was a great refresher as well as a mental upgrade to new options and effects.
I enjoyed these classes. Learned the Indesign toolbox and picked up a few smart tricks. Erica is great at keeping up the pace and being very clear and easy to follow.
I have taught myself InDesign over the last couple years, but this course was a nice refresher on some things I already figured out and gave me a few aha! moments on how I could do things differently. Overall, it deepened my understanding of the functionality within InDesign. Great job, Erica!
