This course teaches the basics of professionally used graphic design software and how to turn ideas into reality, including getting files ready for output. It focuses on Adobe InDesign software for page layout, and will also include Adobe illustrator and Photoshop. With an emphasis on designing for print, it is ideal for those who have already done an introductory course or those that have a real life project - such as a poster or leaflet - that they would like to design through learning the software.
Who should take this course?
Students who have previously done beginners or intermediate graphic design short courses and who have an interest in design and in learning digital software.
