Jeff Witchel is a self-taught computer artist with over 30 years of experience. His initial introduction to the computer was with PageMaker, but he switched to Quark 1.0 when it was first introduced in 1987. Having arrived on the desktop publishing scene so early, Jeff became a “go to” guy for answers when others started getting into computer graphics.
Today Jeff is an Adobe Certified Instructor for InDesign and Illustrator, with training clients across the USA. He’s best known for his tips and tricks video tutorials, which you can view on his training website at JeffWitchel.net. Jeff is also Adobe’s Co-Representative to the InDesign User Group of NJ, an Adobe Community Professional, who answers questions on the Adobe Forums, and an Adjunct Professor at Kean University, Robert Busch School of Design.
Jeff wrote “Layers Magazine Tip of the Day” for five years (2005–2009), which were emailed to 20,000 subscribers every weekday. The best of the InDesign tips were compiled into an book, The Best of Layers Magazine Tips of the Day. He also wrote for Illustrator Techniques magazine (Kelby), InDesign Magazine, the CreativePro website, and InDesignSecrets. Over the years, Jeff has produced many Adobe training videos for Magnet Media in New York and Infinite Skills (O’Reilly).
