Building Great Templates with InDesign, Part 1

Monday, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Pacific

Creating a document in InDesign that can be used to built other documents, often by other people, requires an understanding of a wide range of InDesign features. In this three-part tutorial, we’ll explore the features you should know, how to set up files properly, and how to make use of templates you’ve acquired elsewhere.

Part 1: There are hundreds—perhaps thousands!—of InDesign templates available on the web, some free and some commercial. But they all have one thing in common: They’re useless until you customize them to your own needs. In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Where to find quality templates
  • What makes a professional template?
  • How to explore and understand the way templates are put together
  • Easy ways to customize a template for your own particular brand
  • And how to make sure nobody knows you started with a template
