Event Description

Whether you're a designer, an art director or something in between, chances are you need to layout a project proposal, storyboard, or presentation to pitch your big idea or to land your next client. If you are a traditional print designer struggling to learn digital and interactive skills, this seminar is for you! Michael starts with a tour of digital publishing trends, showcasing engaging and inspirational real-world examples of what can be achieved with InDesign. Then learn how to use the rich layout and typography tools in InDesign in conjunction with the new interactivity features to create a wide range of compelling interactive documents and export as interactive PDFs or Flash (SWF) files. Learn how to transform static print documents into dynamic experiences by adding buttons, links, navigation actions, page transitions, animation, audio and video -- all without having to write any ActionScript code! Along the way, you also learn how to take advantage of some of the most powerful InDesign features such as Master Pages, Styles, Transparency and much more.
