My latest work includes point of purchase displays, video brochures, and branding for a variety of clients. In this course we are going to be designing a clickable eBook in InDesign. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to set up a file optimized for eBook output, develop a consistent style for text content and imagery, place and style existing text content, link fonts and imagery to websites or within the document, and finally export the eBook as a finished clickable piece. By the end of this training you will be able to create your own clickable eBook using consistent-looking content and get lots of new skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign to use on your next project.
