Course Description

RISD CE InDesign course

Designed for easy integration with Adobe's other software products (Photoshop, Illustrator), InDesign has a user-friendly, intuitive interface and offers flexibility through its wide array of supported file formats. Designers can use it to combine text and illustrations for single or multipage documents and to prepare them digitally for output to press, printer or pdf (portable document format). Students in this course gain technical knowledge of the application's basic tool layout, image manipulation, and vector integration tools. All the while, concepts of visual communication and design are reinforced through hands-on exercises.
