Golden Age Theater

7051 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, California 90028




"Whether you’re new to InDesign or an experienced user, there is always more to learn about this incredibly rich program," says David Blatner. Join us in a special celebration of InDesign at our 10th anniversary meeting, where David Blatner will share his "top ten favorite tips." (Plus more...David says he can't stop at just ten.)


David will discuss:

  • Typographic fine-tuning
  • Free scripts and plug-ins every InDesign user needs
  • InDesign magic: One-click formatting for super-efficient workflows
  • Clever workarounds for those "you can't do that in InDesign" situations
  • Best practices for making InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop play well as a team
