Creating Interactive Documents Using InDesign
Thursday, October 28 ,2010
Marina del Rey Library, 4533 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, California 90292
The new interactive features in InDesign CS5 are all the rage, and lucky us: Chris Converse dropped by to demonstrate many of these features for us. He used a movie promotion brochure to show them, and he packed in a lot of information in just 90 minutes.
We are especially indebted to Chris for coming to us after having just conducted a day-long event in Culver City as part of his "Dreamweaver Book Tour," a seminar specifically targeted at designers who want to learn to create web pages.
Following the presentation, we held six raffles. The big winner of the evening was Gina Sato who not only won a copy of Adobe InDesign CS5 but also a copy of Chris Converse's video workbook "Bring Your Web Design to Life," the basis of his Dreamweaver tour.
Michael Grant, a first timer, also won a copy of "Bring Your Web Design to Life."
Steph Sydney won a copy of Adobe InDesign CS3 by Deke McClelland from O'Reilly Press.
Javan Wygal won Brochure Design cards from StockLayouts.
Joe Fresquez won a one-year subscription to InDesign Magazine.
Thank you to the meetings sponsors:
Chris Converse (especially!)
And a thank you to David Blatner and Photolibrary for extraordinary contributions the previous month.
We are looking for people who want to get involved with the administration of the group. Maybe you have web skills, newsletter skills, an eye for photos, want to conduct the raffles. Whatever. Let's talk.
The topic of the next meeting has not yet been set, but it will be held in Altadena on November 18, 2010:
Business Technology Center of Los Angeles County
