Layout with InDesign II (Intermediate Level)

Content: The course focuses on program functions that are required for the design of a multi-page magazine layout. Using the example of a fictitious magazine, the participants create a design grid, work with sample pages and use paragraph and character formats for text design. Students will also learn how to design an article as a form set and how to create magazine-typical layout elements such as picture captions, living column titles and page numbers. Further topics are the creation of a book spine and the export of the magazine as a print-ready PDF.

Target Group: students who are familiar with the contents of the InDesign I course (attendance of the course is not required)
