InDesign Bespoke Training...

The InDesign Course was customised to cover the aspects of design specific to our own forms.  Using actual examples of our products meant that we learned a lot about how to go about this work.  It highlighted several areas where productivity can be improved.

A extremely interesting and useful InDesign Course.  Thank you.
