DURATION: 4 WEEKS
WHAT TO EXPECT
Want to design your own party invites, an advertisement for an event, layout a calendar, design a photo album, or create your own magazine, but don’t know where to start? InDesign 101 is the place! In InDesign 101, you will learn to create many different layouts using the tools within this versatile software. Holly will demystify this powerful program and will teach you everything you need to know to be empowered to design almost anything! InDesign is widely used by graphic designers in the industry, but also the least known outside of it. At the end of this class, you’ll be creating stellar documents for both print and PDF. Holly will also cover how to work with all 3 Adobe Creative Suite programs together in order to create the most diverse and outstanding designs. We recommend you complete the Illustrator 101 and Photoshop 101 classes in conjunction with this InDesign course so you can have all of the programs at your disposal. PLEASE NOTE: This class will be taught in Creative Cloud. Any earlier versions (CS4, CS5, CS6, etc) are still acceptable, but may not have some features that are demonstrated in the class videos. You can download a free 7-day trial of the InDesign CC version at Adobe.com.
HOW IT WORKS
The Nicole’s Classes application is a downloadable program you install on your computer. (The link to download will be provided the day the class starts.) Learning is divided into 4 weeks and within those weeks you can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. There are no set class times, though homework is due every Sunday night for instructor feedback. Students also have unlimited email access to the instructor for the duration of their course, to ask questions or get help when they’re stuck. Our classes are flexible, fit into most any schedule and we happily welcome international students!
InDesign has no prerequisite courses. InDesign must be installed on your computer. If you don’t have InDesign yet and are unsure if it’s the right program for you, Adobe offers a free 7-day trial.

“I am 45 years old and am totally intimidated by technology! I LOVED Holly’s InDesign class! She taught me just what I need to know in order to get me “up and running” in InDesign. Her lessons are well organized and easy to follow! And, her designs are very inspiring! I can’t thank you enough!” — Kerrie, InDesign 101 student
