Introduction to Adobe InDesign


Adobe InDesign is a desktop publishing program that allows you to design high quality brochures, flyers, business cards, postcards, books and even pages for digital publishing.

In this course, you will learn how to add, place and resize graphics; how to create text, import text and work with text in a document; how to draw shapes and use those shapes in your document; and how to package your work for a commercial printer.

VDCI encourages a strong online engagement between you, your instructor and your classmates. You will participate in group discussion forums, connect with your instructor and message your classmates. You are also invited to join us in the VDCI Student Lounge, where our instructors, staff, current students and alumni share information and help one another.
