About The Class

Use basic grids and layouts in InDesign to create dynamic, interactive products.


Once you get all your basic brand assets in order, you’re ready to try your hand at more advanced projects, like digital guides and ebooks. Adobe® InDesign® is perfect for designing more complex pages using grids, glyphs, text wrapping and more, which you can use for marketing purposes or sell as products.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create master pages so you can automatically put certain elements on every page.

  • Add basic interactivity, including hyperlinks, mail links, and tables of contents for easy navigation.

  • Save and export your work so you can share it or send it to be printed.

SOFTWARE USED:
