Learn to create professional magazine and catalog layouts using Adobe InDesign CC. Creating effective and engaging designs is everything to getting people to read your product. People react positively to quality layouts. By using the techniques in this class, you will be on your way to making your magazine just the way you want it.

This class shows you how to use InDesign CC to create modern magazine pages & spreads quickly and effectively. If you make catalogs, magazines, or other media in this family, you need to know the skills in this course. The techniques I teach will make you faster and your designs better.

If you create magazines or have clients that need your help, this course is for you! Most other InDesign courses teach lots of extra material that won't help you. This course is specifically targeted at people who want to create professional designs quickly and effectively. You will avoid the headaches of inexperienced mistakes.
