About The Class

Use Adobe InDesign to showcase your style like a pro

A style guide is a set of rules that define how you should create, represent, and maintain your brand in a variety of formats—from print to web to broadcast. Whether you’re a part of a team or working on your own, creating a style guide is a great way to clarify how you intend to communicate your brand and make sure you’re always consistent.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Compose an effective mission statement and story for your brand.

  • Define your brand voice so your style and tone are consistent across all your materials.

  • Choose the colors, fonts, and imagery and that will convey your brand to the world.

Software Used: 
Adobe InDesign CC 2018

    I'm reasonably new to InDesign and i found this class easy to follow and it also helped me get a basic idea of the tools and settings needed to use InDesign for other projects too.
