Overview

With many software guides serving as high-tech "recipe books," teaching cookie-cutter habits with little relevance to complex, real-world projects, EXPLORING ADOBE INDESIGN Creative Cloud takes a different approach. Emphasizing on fundamental design principles, critical thinking skills, and practical applications to prepare you for professional success, this unique text features step-by-step tutorials, vibrant illustrations, and realistic exercises to engage your interest while helping you develop essential software skills. Each chapter builds on what you have learned, guiding you from exploring basic operations to creating complex documents with confidence and efficiency. In addition to mastering InDesign--including standard functionality and features new to Creative Cloud--the text prepares you to analyze new design projects, identify potential challenges, develop effective strategies, and apply industry-standard principles and practices to execute your plans successfully. The Data Files used to complete the projects found in the book are now available online. For access information please refer to the directions available in the preface of the book.
