PREFACE

PURPOSE

The Against The Clock series has been developed specifically for those involved in the field of graphic arts.

Welcome to the world of electronic design and prepress. Many of our readers are already involved in the industry—in advertising and design companies, in prepress arid imaging firms, and in the world of commercial printing and reproduction. Others are just now preparing themselves for a career somewhere in the profession.

This series of courses will provide you with the skills necessary to work in this fast-paced, exciting, and rapidly expanding business. Many people feel that they can simply purchase a computer, the appropriate software, a laser printer, and a ream of paper, and begin designing and producing high-quality printed materials. While this might suffice for a barbecue announcement or a flyer for a yard sale, the real world of four-color printing and professional communications requires a far more serious commitment.

THE SERIES

The applications presented in the Against The Clock series stand out as the programs of choice in professional graphic arts environments.

We've used a modular design for the Against The Clock series, allowing you to mix and match the drawing, imaging, and page-layout applications that exactly suit your specific needs.

Titles available in the Against The Clock series include:

Macintosh: Basic Operations
Windows: Basic Operations
Adobe Illustrator: Introduction and Advanced Digital Illustration
Macromedia FreeHand: Introduction and Advanced Digital Illustration
Adobe InDesign:Introduction and Advanced Electronic Mechanicals
Adobe PageMaker. Introduction and Advanced Electronic Mechanicals
QuarkXPress: Introduction and Advanced Electronic Mechanicals
Microsoft Publisher: Creating Electronic Mechanicals
Microsoft PowerPoint: Presentation Graphics with Impact
Microsoft FrontPage: Designing for the Web
MetaCreations Painter: A Digital Approach to Natural Art Media
Adobe Photoshop: Introduction and Advanced Digital Images
Adobe Premiere: Digital Video Editing
Macromedia Director: Creating Powerful Multimedia
File Preparation: The Responsible Electronic Page
Preflight: An Introduction to File Analysis and Repair
Trap Wise and PressWise: Digital Trapping and Imposition


ICONS AND VISUALS

We've designed our courses to be cross-platform. While many sites use Macintosh computers, there is an increasing number of graphic arts service providers using Intel-based systems running Windows (or WindowsNT). The books in this series are applicable to either of these systems.

All of the applications that we cover in the Against The Clock series are similar in operation and appearance whether you're working on a Macintosh or a Windows system. When a particular function does differ from machine to machine, we present both.

ICONS AND VISUAIS

Pencil icon indicates a comment from an experienced operator. Whenever you see the pencil icon, you'll find corresponding sidebar text that augments or builds upon the subject being discussed at the time.

Bomb icon indicates a potential problem or difficulty. For instance, a certain technique might lead to pages that prove difficult to output. In other cases, there might be something that a program cannot easily accomplish, so we might present a workaround.

Pointing Finger icon indicates a hands-on activity—whether a short exercise or a complete project. Note that sometimes this icon will direct you to the back of the book to complete a project.

Key icon is used to point out that there is a keyboard equivalent to a menu or dialog-box option. Key commands are often faster than using the mouse to select a menu option. Experienced operators often mix the use of keyboard equivalents and menu/dialog box selections to arrive at their optimum speed.

If you are a Windows user, be sure to refer to the corresponding text or images whenever you see the Windows icon. Although there isn't a great deal of difference between using these applications on a Macintosh and using them on a Windows-based workstation, there are certain instances where there's enough of a difference for us to comment.

THE PROJECTS YOU WILL WORK ON

In addition to explanatory text and illustrations, Against The Clock course materials have been constructed with two primary building blocks: exercises and projects. Projects always result in a finished piece of work—digital imagery typically built from the ground up, utilizing photographic-quality images; vector artwork from illustration programs; and type elements from the library supplied on your student CD-ROM.

This course, Adobe InDesign 1.5: Advanced Electronic Mechanicals, uses several step-by-step projects on which you will work during your learning sessions. (There are also open-ended project assignments immediately preceding the two reviews.) You will find images of the step-by-step projects that you will complete by the end of the course displayed on the inside front and back covers of the book. Here's a brief overview of each:

PROJECT A: VISIT COSTA RICA

In our global economy, many designers face the challenge of producing ads in more than one language with graphics that illustrate a variety of experiences. You will use InDesign's Create Outlines feature, make a variety of compound paths, and fill the compound frames with graphics. You will also apply a gradient to text. Finally you will use layers to create both English and Spanish versions of this multilanguage, full-page ad.

PROJECT B: CELEBRATE 2000

The imaginative marriage of text and graphics can result in attractive designs, and can transform the mundane into a fun-filled presentation. This project, a celebratory ad, will test your skills in filling text outlines with images, wrapping text around and within graphics, and using graphic elements sprinkled throughout to tie it all together. You will use layers to make assembling this project easier.

PROJECT C: GRAPHICOM NEWSLETTER

A newsletter is an important component in the overall marketing of most companies. Newsletters, however, must be produced efficiently and professionally. This 6-page document will let you use a variety of techniques for efficient production. It includes manually inserted text that automates the application of styles. You will build a number of masters and styles, and work with a variety of text and graphic elements, including in-line graphics and photos with clipping paths.

PROJECT D: THE ANNUAL REPORT

Today's annual reports are often purposed for the Web and electronic distribution in addition to being printed. In this project, you will work with bleeds and callouts, and will integrate text and graphics. You will make a table and create the covers as a separate section, in preparation to publishing the report. As an extra, the document is prepared with low-resolution, RGB images, ready to produce PDF proofs and HTML files for the Web. These may be swapped out with high-resolution CMYK files for printing at high resolution as an additional, on-your-own project.

SUPPORT MATERIALS

FOR THE STUDENT

On the CD-ROM you will find a complete set of the Against The Clock (ATC) fonts, as well as a collection of data files used to construct the various exercises and projects.

The ATC fonts are solely for use while you are working with the Against The Clock materials. These fonts will be used throughout both the exercises and projects.

A variety of student files have been included. These files are necessary to complete both the exercises and the step-by-step projects.

FOR THE INSTRUCTOR

The Instructor Kit consists of an Instructor's Manual and an Instructor's CDROM. It includes various testing and presentation materials in addition to the files that come standard with the student books.

  • Overhead Presentation Materials are provided and follow along with the course. These presentations are prepared using Microsoft PowerPoint and are provided in both native PowerPoint format as well as Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF).

  • Extra Projects are provided along with the data files required for completion. These projects may be used to extend the course, or may be used to test the student.

  • Finished artwork (in PDF format) for all projects that the students complete is supplied on the CD-ROM.

  • Test Questions and Answers are included on the instructor CD-ROM. These questions may be modified, reorganized, and administered through out the delivery of the course.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I would like to give special thanks to the writers, illustrators, editors, and others who have worked long and hard to complete the Against The Clock series. Foremost among them are Robin McAllister, Dean Bagley, Lisa Bochatey, and Don Poyssick, whom I thank for their long nights, early mornings, and their seemingly endless patience.

Thanks to the dedicated teaching professionals whose comments and expertise contributed to the success of these products, including Doris Anton of the Wichita Area Technical College, Bonnie George of Pittsburgh State University, Carin Murphy of the Des Moines Area Community College, and Dee Colvin of the University of North Florida.

And a big thanks to Terry Sisk Graybill, copy editor and final link in the chain of production, for her tremendous help in making sure we all said what we meant to say.

A big thanks to Judy Casillo, developmental editor, and Denise Brown, production editor, for their guidance, patience, and attention to detail.

A special thanks to my husband, Gary Poyssick, for his unswerving support and for living in a publishing studio.
