OUGD405: Design Process - Workshop - InDesign

As part of this module, we have had various workshops, showing us how to develop our skills in essential software which we need to be able to use as part of the Graphic Design industry. The three main programs which we need to learn Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

InDesign is able to work with multi-page documents, being the mains strength.

You can see above, the product of the two sessions, although, I'm fairly confident with Adobe InDesign, as I was taught it at College, I really learnt some useful tips and methods with will definitely benefit me in the future, when I need to use InDesign to create something.

  • InDesign is very similar to illustrator and photoshop, they contain the same tools and pallets.
  • Letter, Legal and Tabloid are American size papers, dis-regard them.
  • Set your paper size to the finished, trimmed, paper size.
  • Use a Bleed, with a standard bleed size of 3mm. 
  • You can change the layout of the page, as in margins and columns, and other document settings.
