"The Basics of InDesign for Newspapers ... and Much More!"
Noon-2 p.m. Pacific, Wednesday, April 25
$59 for PNNA members
Nothing slows an editorial or design workflow like having to use an application without expert training. Whether you're a relative newcomer to Indesign, or just feel like you never received the training you need to fully utilize the application, this special two-hour class is for you!
Presenter Kevin Slimp has been teaching Adobe InDesign as long as it's been on the market. Working with the InDesign team while the application was being developed, Kevin trained a group of 98 newspaper designers in Phoenix, Arizona the week InDesign hit the shelves. In the 20 years since, he has come to be known as the guru of InDesign training, and newspaper users will find his training especially beneficial.
Just like the title says, in this session Kevin will teach the basics ... and much more! Bring three pens. You're going to need them! This session also includes a detailed outline, which attendees will receive prior to the class. Register now
