Adobe InDesign 1-on-1 workshop

Whether you’ve never used Adobe InDesign, are an aspiring graphic designer with some initial experience or a confident user who’d like to learn a specific skill, I offer dedicated 1-on-1 Adobe InDesign workshops from my studio in Bath.

Like Adobe Illustrator, InDesign creates vector artwork which allows images to be scaled to any size without distortion. However, InDesign’s main benefit over Illustrator is in creating multi-page documents such as brochures, magazines and books. During my InDesign workshop, I’ll show you how to master creating professional documents, importing images that you’ve created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and producing professional PDFs suitable for print and online use. Learning how to setup pages correctly, create character and paragraph styles to seamlessly update throughout your document and creating single page or multi-spread layouts are just a few of the other skills you’ll learn.

My aim with all my workshops is to tailor them specifically to your needs. If you’ve already got a grip on InDesign but want to create and author your own book via the InDesign Blurb plug-in, that’s no problem (I’ve made lots). If you’re a complete novice, that’s no issue – I’ll explain and show you how to get the most out of Adobe InDesign.

As with most programmes like InDesign, there’s always several ways to achieve what you’re after. However, some methods are not necessarily the quickest or best solution. With over 10 years’ professional experience using InDesign, I’m here to show you how to start out on the right foot. Whether this is making a simple brochure or a set of business cards for your company, I’ll show you my working practices in a friendly and relaxed training session.

For users looking to create logos, please see my Abobe Illustrator workshop which is more suited to created individual pieces of vector artwork.

Workshop rates

All my classes are run privately on a 1-on-1 basis and charged at £45 per hour (no VAT applied).

For new users, an initial session lasting 3-4 hours is usually best to discover the basics and then after some home practice, a further series of 1-2 hour sessions can be booked to develop specific skills. However, please get in touch to discuss your exact requirements and I’ll be more than happy to advise on the time and cost needed to achieve your InDesign aims.

“I worked with Philip to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator and he also helped me design my logo. He is a fantastic designer, a wonderful teacher and has such extensive knowledge. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. I am very grateful for all his help and the breadth of his work is incredibly impressive.”
