Adobe InDesign is the industry standard for page-layout design. Originally created for print design, InDesign also incorporates a number of sophisticated tools that make it much easier to repurpose content for multiple media, including HTML, EPUB, and iPad delivery. This book was developed to not only teach how to apply the broad scope of InDesign’s features, but also how to “work smarter” by streamlining your workflow with time-saving functions like document templates; master pages; character-, paragraph-, and object-formatting styles; and libraries.
By completing the eight projects in this book, you will compile an impressive portfolio sure to impress potential employers and clients. You will learn how to:

  • Format text properly, create vector graphics with InDesign’s drawing tools, and import images from external files, all within file specifications appropriate for commercial printing.
  • Manipulate images and text to create unique, eye-catching, colorful effects for cohesive designs.
  • Use file templates, master layouts, and text-formatting styles to dramatically improve the efficiency of your workflow.
  • Thread lengthy stories across multiple pages using InDesign’s utilities to control formatting and pagination.
  • Define appropriate settings for folding documents.
  • Use conditional text and layers to develop customized versions of a document.
  • Use built-in tools to combine multiple documents into a single book, including managing a table of contents and index that unifies all files in the book.
  • Use a variety of methods, including XML and shared content, to incorporate the same elements in a series of related layouts.
  • Incorporate interactive elements to take advantage of the capabilities in digitally distributed files.
  • Repurpose content for multiple media, including HTML, EPUB, digital PDF, and iPad file formats.
