Testimonials

The value of that course was definitely above my expectations ! Great teacher, crystal-clear explanations, while having a bit of fun : the perfect way to learn ! And I did learned a great deal about InDesign thanks to Daniel ! Although I already used it before, all I knew was just from friends, and internet forums basically... Now I learned the basics, properly, and that will save me so much time ! That course is worth so much more than what I paid for !

This course definitely exceeded my expectations. I'm well-versed in photoshop and Illustrator and like a lot of designers, I've stayed far away from InDesign bc I THOUGHT it was difficult. Daniel explains things in a way that it's not frustrating and boring as a person who knows other adobe platforms. As for the people saying he's going too fast...it's a video - not an in-person class, pause it and figure it out. If you're on the fence about Daniel's class, don't hesitate to purchase it. I've bought 2 courses from other people on here and his was the most straight-to-the-point course and it wasn't boring. I had fun learning InDesign and this course is worth so much more than you pay on Udemy. Thank you!

This course has been a life changing experience for me! I’ve been unmotivated the past 2 years because of the fear of failure in my business endeavors. I realize now I was more afraid of not being able to comprehend what the instructor was teaching....now I’m eagerly waiting to enjoy the next course. Learning has been a positive uplifting journey for me now!

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.
