Our online training is designed to re-create the classroom experience as closely as possible. It is a live training session using Zoom or Teams and the trainer is there throughout. The training is still hands-on so you do need to have the software installed on your own computer. The trainer shares their screen to demonstrate techniques and there is also the option of being able to share your screen if you are really stuck! Depending on the class size, which we still keep to a maximum of 8, questions can be asked at any time or at set points throughout the day.

The trainers like to see you! They much prefer it if you have a camera on so they can see you as well as you them.

We provide everything that you will need for a fun, productive day of training.

Everyone has their own computer to work on in a comfortable, bright, air conditioned room.

We provide plenty of tea, coffee & biscuits, a delicious, freshly prepared lunch and a USB stick so that you can take files home with you.

We provide 6 months of post course support as well.

If you get stuck on anything relating to the course simply get in touch and explain the issue.

We will make sure your trainer contacts you as soon as possible to help you out.

Our focus is on you being a faster, more capable InDesign user when you return to work.

We also make sure that there is plenty of time for you to ask questions in case there is anything you are unsure of.

Yes we are.

We are authorised by Adobe to run courses at our Guildford centre and also at our client’s offices.

Adobe has not been creating new AATC’s in London for some time. This means that we are currently unable to get official Adobe authorised training centre status in London.

We hope to during 2020 and be assured that our London courses are run to exactly the same standard as those in Guildford.

Libraries are covered towards the end of our 2-day advanced InDesign class.

As noted above they can speed up your workflow substantially.

We cover creating tables of contents when you attend our course for advanced InDesign users.

Tables of contents can be quickly and simply created and updated if you set them up correctly.

No other than your travel to the course venue.

We provide everything that you need for a great day’s training.

This includes lunch, tea, coffee & biscuits, a full-colour manual to keep and pens, pads and a USB stick.

When you book a course on our website we will be alerted of that in the office. We will then process your booking and reply to your booking with an email which hopefully contains all of the details that you need.

When you receive it please read it carefully, it will contain:

  1. A VAT invoice which is due for payment 14 days before the course.
  2. Full venue details & location. This includes suggested routes of travel to the venue and instructions for the day.
  3. A confirmation of your booking course, dates and location.

Please note that if you are an individual making a booking for yourself less than 14 days before the course we will require payment at the point of booking.

We accept direct bank transfers and credit card payments.

We charge 2% for payments made on company credit cards.

Yes! We will provide everyone attending a course with a certificate to show attendance and your ability to use the software.

Come dressed in whatever you find most comfortable. Most people on our courses dress casually.

No… InDesign is practically identical on Mac and Windows platforms.

There are incredibly few difference but we’re happy to discuss these with you during any of our classes.

Of course… it’s what InDesign is designed for!

If you attend our course for InDesign beginners you’ll be able to quickly create a beautiful flyer or poster very quickly in InDesign.

This article on InDesign flyers gives you lots of templates and examples of the types of things you’ll be able to create after your training course with us.

Yes, layers are covered in our course for InDesign beginners.

However, Layers in Photoshop are very different from Layers in InDesign and Illustrator so… don’t be expecting the same… they’re easier!

Adobe InDesign is just under £20/month on a Creative Cloud subscription.

You can find full details on Creative Cloud subscriptions here.

Alternatively we’d be very happy to discuss it with during one of the breaks during your course.

Illustrator is used to create graphics (maps, plans, icons, infographics, graphs, logos etc).

InDesign is used to create and format documents (magazines, flyers etc).

The two applications work hand in hand and Adobe have designed them that way so that transferring files from one to the other is very simple.

The best way to think of it is that unless the graphics that you create in Illustrator are going to be used completely stand-alone, you will need to transfer them to another computer package to include them in a magazine or poster. InDesign is an application designed specifically for that.

For more details see these pages on the Adobe site.

Our trainers know InDesign inside out, some have been using it since it was launched! So we’re happy to answer questions on other areas of InDesign.

They are also expert graphic designers so you won’t just be exposed to the best training in terms of the program but you’ll also pick up some great design tricks about how to produce great-looking work.

Lots of people keep in touch after the course so there is a good chance you will expand your network of graphic design experts who you can call on in the future if you ever need a second opinion. And if you want to go the more formal route we are here for you after the training and offer you 6 months of post-course support.
