Another great course! After the Photoshop lessons I was counting on a lot and ... I was not disappointed;) Daniel, thank you very much for the virtual time you have devoted to me! Greetings from Poland!

This course was beyond helpful. I've been tinkering with inDesign for a few years, stumbling around until I had a basic working knowledge of the program. But, I knew there had to be more it could do for me. I was constantly Googling "How to [insert today's challenge] in inDesign," which is how I found Daniel's course. Then, in just 8 hours, (plus a few extra for practice and going back to re-watch some sections that were especially useful in answering my original query to Google) the difference in my skills, speed, and understanding of how to use this thing is dramatic! I can honestly say now that I know what I'm doing in there - no more stumbling around - and it's going to be a game changer for my work. I highly recommend this course. Thanks, Dan!

Wow!!! Learning InDesign is not for the 'faint of heart', yet Dan made this subject extremely enjoyable and I only need to review everything once more and I am currently about to jump in and create my first workbook and it's not scary anymore. Thank you so much Dan for all of your hard work. It shows you are a 'master of your trade'. Hugs, Janet

Hi there, my name is Dan. I am an Adobe Certified Instructor and an Adobe Certified Expert for InDesign and I work as a professional graphic designer. This course is about advanced features, productivity & workflow speed tricks using Adobe InDesign.
This course is not for people brand new to InDesign. It’s for people who already know and understand the fundamentals.
If you are already happy adding text & images to InDesign documents then this course is for you. Even if you consider yourself a heavy user, I promise there will be things in here that will blow your InDesign mind.
You’ll learn advanced font tricks using Typekit & Opentype fonts, font grouping & font pairing. Mastering colour features like the colour theme tool and colour modes as well as professional proofing for colours for print. We’ll set permanent defaults for fonts, colours & will learn how to turn hyphenation off for good, once and for all.
What would an advanced InDesign course be without all the tactics to fully control paragraphs, auto expanding boxes, spanning & splitting columns. You’ll become a Styles master, using nested styles, grep styles, next styles & advanced object styles.
We’ll make beautiful charts & graphs for your InDesign documents. You’ll learn the pros & cons of various digital distribution methods including Interactive PDF’s, EPUBs & the amazing Publish Online.
You’ll become a master of long, text heavy documents, autoflowing, primary text frames & smart text reflow, cross referencing, indexes, text variables & the InDesign book feature. There is entire section dedicated to how to speed up your personal workflow & how to speed up InDesign and get it running super fast.
We look at interactive forms & scripts. There is just so much we cover and I want to share everything here in the intro but I can’t. Have a look through the video list, there is an amazing amount we cover here in the course.
If you’re one of those people using InDesign and you know there is probably a better way, a faster way to work then this is your course.
