Our previous post introduced you to one of the documents in our forthcoming Intuitive InDesign book, Working from an InDesign Template, and here is a slightly more complex example from the same book that will give you an insight into working with documents which contain more text such as leaflets or newsletters.
If you’ve never used InDesign before and have been given a template to work from, where do you start? This is a fairly typical experience for marketing professionals who may be used to briefing a design agency to produce their marketing collateral, but who’ve never touched InDesign. Because of both the economic climate and the blurring of once distinct roles, work that would have previously been created solely by a designer or design agency is now often initially designed by them, but then handed over to their client to work with in the form of a template. So working from a template has become a task that many marketers need to learn.
