About the course

Are you scared to learn InDesign on your own? Does it look intimidating? Don't worry, I promise by the end of the first few videos you will realize InDesign is actually a simple to use program.

  • Kara: "This course definitely exceeded my expectations. I've stayed far away from InDesign because I THOUGHT it was difficult. Daniel explains things in a way that it's not frustrating and boring. If you're on the fence about Daniel's class, don't hesitate to purchase it. I've bought 2 courses from other people on here and his was the most straight-to-the-point course and it wasn't boring. I had fun learning InDesign and this course is worth so much more than you pay on Udemy. Thank you!"

Hi there, my name is  Dan. I am a graphic designer and Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) for Adobe InDesign CC.

Together we will work through real life projects starting with a simple company flyer, then a brochure & a company newsletter. We’ll make business cards & take control of a really long annual report. You'll learn essential typographic, color theory & graphic design principals.

We will work with colour, picking your own and also using corporate colours. You will explore how to choose & use fonts like a professional. We will find, resize & crop images for your documents.

  • Margie: "This course has been a life changing experience for me! I’ve been unmotivated the past 2 years because of the fear of failure in my business endeavours. I realize now I was more afraid of not being able to comprehend what the instructor was I’m eagerly waiting to enjoy the next course. Learning has been a positive uplifting journey for me now!"

There are projects for you to complete, so you can practise your skills & use these for your creative portfolio.

In this course I supply exercise files so you can play along. I will also save my files as I go through each video so that you can compare yours to mine - handy if something goes wrong.

Know that I will be around to help - if you get lost you can drop a post on the video 'Questions and Answers' below each video and I'll be sure to get back to you.

  • Damayanti: "So thankful for this! it's my first time learning this program, but I can confidentially say that Daniel is a great choice as an instructor. What I really love is that you guys are really teaching each and everything that new comers like me need to learn to become a pro. Zero to Hero is the right slogan you guys used! Glad I get to learn through here!"

I will share every design trick I have learnt in the last 15 years of designing. My goal is for you to finish this course with all the necessary skills to start making beautiful documents using Adobe InDesign CC.

InDesign Tutorial Basics Course Introduction
Hi there, my name is Dan. I'm a Graphic Designer, and an Adobe Certificated Instructor for InDesign.I'm lucky enough to help Adobe directly with a lot of their help videos on their website. Also, I get to speak at their Annual Conference, which is Adobe Max, which is a very cool conference.

What does Adobe InDesign do?
Now, what is InDesign? Basically, its a big Desktop Publishing. Its like a big version of Microsoft Word. Now, Microsoft Word gets you to a certain level but never gets you to that kind of a Pro level. Its quite intuitive, you can teach yourself a bit of it. I've got a full course on Word, if you want to go check that out, it gets into a lot more of the detail, but InDesign is where you kind of where Word finishes, InDesign starts.
What are the differences between InDesign and PageMaker, Illustrator, Photoshop,
So what is the difference between InDesign, and say Quark, Photoshop, Illustrator, PageMaker, FrameMaker? There's all sorts of other programs out there. Let's quickly talk about where they all sit.
PROJECT 1: One page flyer
Our first project! In this section we'll build a one page flyer that stands out. We'll go over every step, picking colors, planting in the images, grouping, exporting and using CC Libraries.
How to change MM to Inches & changing UK to US dictionary in InDesign?
Hi, everyone. In this video, before we get started making this lovely flier, we need to adjust our measurements. By default, often InDesign comes with the measurement of 'Picas'. It just means that whenever you see this box at the top here, it's in 'Millimeters', yours might be set to 'Picas'. When I make a rectangle, all the measurements are set to that. Or if you're just switching from Imperial to Metric.
New document in InDesign - what is bleed & slug?
In this video we're going to create our flyer document. We're going to have the page size, this little red line around the outside, which is 'Bleed', and our 'Margins' all set up, ready to go. Let's go and do that.
How to create your own RGB & CMYK colors in Adobe InDesign
Hi there, in this video we're going to look at adding these sexy colors over here to InDesign. We'll look at color in general, its a little bit longish video but its the kind of stuff you need to know if you're going to be getting into InDesign production. So let's go and add some pre-made colors.
How do I steal colors from a logo using InDesign?
In this video we're going to steal colors from an image, rather than knowing what the corporate colors are, because we don't know what they are, let's say we're going to go and steal them using this handy little ‘Eyedropper’, then we're going to add it to down here into our 'Swatches' panel. But before we get started, will it be the exact color from the brand guidelines, will it be perfect? No. Will it be close enough that nobody will notice? Yes.
How to color the background of a page in InDesign
In this video we're going to make a nice big colored background. It's going to have no stroke around the outside, a little line, but a nice big colored fill. Let's go and do that. Before we get started and put the big box in the background we need to understand the difference between a 'Fill' and a 'Stroke'. It's reasonably easy, but let's quickly look at it.
Importing resizing rotating & flipping images & Logos inside InDesign
Howdy, partners? In this video we're going to look at bringing in images, and logos, and rotating them, and we'll look at this one, where we've cropped it, you can see, look at this, sneaky. This was actually a little bit bigger. So we'll crop them into a nice little box. We'll flip them, we'll do all sorts of stuff with images. All right, let's go and do that now.
