Tips for life, tips for tech

Before beginning anything, we should prepare the materials and the spirit.

Here is some seem-to-be good tutorials to get our hands dirty with Adobe InDesign, all in English.

1. What is InDesign, what is it used for?

Right in Adobe home page, they provide us a video about what InDesign is, so we should start from that point (clean English and even the subtitle, yay!):

To be short, InDesign is a powerful tool helping us creating high quality documents, and instead of working with brush or effect in Photoshop or Illustrator, InDesign involves in Layout, Typography, Printing… we can even create an interactive PDF document that have embedded videos, animated graphics… Publishing software, that’s how we should describe InDesign.

2. Use tool in InDesign:

Just like Photoshop or Illustrator, InDesign has a tool panel that we can access many tools which are useful and accelerate our working process.

Those are two of 44 useful tutorials written in creativebloq.com: http://www.creativebloq.com/graphic-design-tips/indesign-tutorials-1232639, and mostly linked to Adobe site, which are free and fast to load videos. So let’s start learning.

Otherwise, if you don’t want to learn from scratch, you can intermediately create an artwork and learn through the process, refer to this place: http://design.tutsplus.com/articles/15-indesign-tutorials-for-magazine-and-layout-design–vector-5456
