Testimonials

Daniel is probably the best instructor on Udemy! Really cool explanations, presented in a fun way. He gives exercises and repeats stuff all the time so he helps you memorize what you learned. And you learn a lot! It was a pleasure taking this course :) I hope he does many many more. I would highly recommend this one and gladly purchase others made by him. Thank you Daniel, good luck and congratulations for a great job.

This class was great!! I've always been interested in Graphic Design and want to start a home business along with our photography business. I was told to get familiar with the Program before starting school again. With this class, I have already start designing logo's! Looking forward to the advanced class!!!

Course Overview

Hi there, my name is  Dan. I am a graphic designer and Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI)  for InDesign.

Together we will work through real life projects starting with a simple company flyer, then a brochure & a company newsletter. We’ll make business cards & take control of a really long annual report.

We will work with colour, picking your own and also using corporate colours. You will explore how to choose & use fonts like a professional. We will find, resize & crop images for your documents.

There are projects for you to complete, so you can practise your skills & use these for your creative portfolio.

In this course I supply exercise files so you can play along. I will also save my files as I go through each video so that you can compare yours to mine - handy if something goes wrong.

Know that I will be around to help - if you get lost you can drop a post on the video 'Questions and Answers' below each video and I'll be sure to get back to you.

I will share every design trick I have learnt in the last 15 years of designing. My goal is for you to finish this course with all the necessary skills to start making beautiful documents using InDesign.
