Meeting Topic: InDesign In Fashion


This is one in a series of presentations on how InDesign is used in specific industries. This evening Kevin Sheffield will guide you through the typical fashion design workflow with an emphasis on InDesign in the process. The overall goal is to keep the flow of creativity moving and avoid any traffic jams by enabling customers with the right information and guidance. Kevin will discuss the Creative Cloud and go through the new features and best practices of each application, describing how each is relevant to the fashion industry and used with PLM solutions. Kevin will end his presentation by taking a broader perspective and showing how skills in InDesign can lead to opportunities within the fashion industry.
