Students work to refine their skills both technically and creatively. Participants view many examples of successful design as well as the workflow to accomplish similar projects. The two days will be filled with exercises, and address topics such as page elements, managing styles, working with paths, incorporating external files, managing long documents, and pre-flighting and packaging files for print and web publishing.
