With many software guides serving as high-tech "recipe books," teaching cookie-cutter habits with little relevance to complex, real-world projects, EXPLORING ADOBE INDESIGN CS6 takes a different approach. Emphasizing on fundamental design principles, critical thinking skills, and practical applications to prepare students for professional success, this unique text features step-by-step tutorials, vibrant illustrations, and realistic exercises to engage students' interest while helping them develop essential software skills. Each chapter builds on what students have learned, guiding them from exploring basic operations to creating complex documents with confidence and efficiency. In addition to mastering InDesign CS6—including standard functionality and features new to this release—the text prepares students to analyze new design projects, identify potential challenges, develop effective strategies, and apply industry-standard principles and practices to execute their plans successfully.
