InDesign Testimonials

I'd highly recommend this course for anyone looking to learn InDesign. The course facilitator (David) explained everything clearly and took the time to provide further demonstrations, if needed.

Elizabeth C, Strategic Communications Specialist

“I have always created reports, newsletters, media briefs and other such documents in Word but now that I have learnt the basics of InDesign I can create much more visually appealing and professional-looking documents that will engage with the readers.”

William M, Media and Communications Advisor

“David provides an interactive and informative two-day course on the essentials of InDesign while also providing tips and tricks for relating to design theory and everyday use of InDesign. It was a fantastic refresher and cannot wait to come back for InDesign Advanced!”

Rebecca D, Project Officer

“David was a brilliant educator. Not only was the course was incredibly informative - it was very engaging and entertaining!”

Mikaela S, Winery Brand Manager

“This course taught me all of the essentials of InDesign and so much more! I am excited to get back to work and test out my new skills.”

Britt T, Senior Marketing Executive

Paula H, Medias and Communications Advisor

“I've been a Graphic Designer, Web Designer and Web Developer for 10 Years. And as a InDesign user for 4 years, I can say that I've learned a lot of important techniques that I never knew existed because of this course. So either you're a beginner or an expert, I highly recommend you attend this course to refresh or gain new techniques to be a better designer. Thank you David for all the new shared knowledge.”

Jairus B, Digital Graphic Designer

“The course was fantastic to get a real hands-on idea of how to use the program from the ground-up. I feel a lot of the overwhelming feeling I used to have when approaching InDesign has been completely removed thanks to David who taught the program in a really easy to understand way and made me excited to use it in the future!”

Hayley J, Marketing

“My company always uses this company for InDesign training, I can see why now. Everything was extremely well organised and materials provided were extremely helpful. Teachers also managed to find a balance between work and fun.”

Mia R, Administrator / Reception

“I had used InDesign before, but wanted to make sure I was learning things the right way, not just through word of mouth. This course covers everything you need to create something from scratch and had a clear, systematic approach. I liked how we recapped Day 1 content in Day 2 to consolidate everything we've learnt. The shortcut keys handout is also great! Thanks City Desktop Training! ”
