About the Course
This course will teach you the principles of effective desktop publishing on the PC.
It's ideal if you are working in-house for a marketing or communications team, and it is equally relevant if you are self-employed or involved in a start-up company.
The course will provide you with guidance on what makes good layout design, and will develop your technical and visual skills to enable you to produce professional looking presentations across both printed and digital media.
On this course you will:
- have practical sessions using the latest desktop publishing software (Adobe Creative Suite) and theoretical discussions featuring contemporary examples of good design practice
- learn the technical basics of print-ready artwork and be able to create complete items that are suitable for outputting to laser, lithographic and digital printers
- explore layout of stationery, magazines, newsletters, brochures and webpages with a view to producing consistent, coherent and credible communications.
What will you gain?
This course is ideal for anyone who has not attended a software-based course before. It will take you from the basics and quickly develop your ability to design professional-looking documents.
Entry requirement: Whilst no software experience is required, you should be confident in saving files and basic computer functions.
