Are you scared to learn InDesign on your own? Does it look intimidating? Don't worry, I promise by the end of the first few videos you will realize InDesign is actually a simple to use program.

Kara: "This course definitely exceeded my expectations. I've stayed far away from InDesign because I THOUGHT it was difficult. Daniel explains things in a way that it's not frustrating and boring. 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!"

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

Margie: "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 endeavours. 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!"

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.

Damayanti: "So thankful for this! it's my first time learning this program, but I can confidentially say that Daniel is a great choice as an instructor. What I really love is that you guys are really teaching each and everything that new comers like me need to learn to become a pro. Zero to Hero is the right slogan you guys used!

Project-Based Learning For Beginners: Learn Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign by creating posters, logos, and more.

What you'll learn

  • A clear understanding of how to work with BOTH print and web projects in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
  • The skills and confidence to create things like flyers, business cards, web graphics, and more.
  • How to build a skill set that can set you up to be employable in the creative industry as a graphic designer.

Requirements

  • Have access to the Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I will be using a Mac, but you can just as easily follow along with a Windows machine since the principles will be the same and the apps work on either platform.
  • Be proficient with using a computer, although prior knowledge of any of the Adobe apps is not necessary. However, this is not an “A to Z” course for every bell and whistle that each app provides, but rather a roadmap for how to make awesome projects that people are willing to pay for or that employers are looking for you to have skills with creating.
  • Some creative skills (drawing, photography, etc.) are helpful and will definitely give you a better chance at becoming successful as a designer, but not required.
  • A desire to learn design, whether for a job or for a hobby - design is for everyone!

This course is for anyone who is interested in becoming a graphic designer, and especially geared towards total beginners. I'll show you how to make some of the most popular projects in the industry, like:
  • custom logos

We will be using Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator; the industry-standard applications for graphic design. I'll also review relevant terms and design practices to help you create pixel-perfect projects for print and web, with the goal to get you up and running as soon as possible so you can start your new and exciting career as a graphic designer.  

If you aren't looking to learn design for a job, don;t worry - this is a great course for you too! Many of my students are moms looking to make fun cards or invitations, or students looking to spice up their resumes and social media graphics, and teachers looking to add some creative elements to their homework materials - the list goes on and on. Design is for everyone! And this course is, too!

There is also a private Facebook group with over 5600 students and counting, which is an awesome resource for you to take advantage of while you go through the course. The group is an excellent place to post projects, get insightful critiques, and network with other like-minded students and working professionals all over the world.

I cover a lot of program shortcuts in this course as well!

For the most part, all of the principles you will learn in this course transcend the tools you actually use - There are students using Adobe versions from CS3 up to CC 2018, and there are even students using apps like Sketch and Pixelmator to make some of the projects in this course. 

If you see anything in any of the lectures that no longer apply with the software update, please let me know! I’m doing my best to keep this course up to date and continue to add value for you.
