Adobe InDesign

Adobe InDesign is an application I have used since Adobe first introduce it through its Creative Suite. I have used the application for years in creating everything from Publication Ads, Direct Mail, Annual Reports, etc. I have work with other Desktop Publishing apps like Quark Xpress and even Pagemaker in the past, but in my opion neither of these apps have measured up to Adobe InDesign. I have over 20 plus years experience working in the Digital Communications Industries and the use of technology has aided my professional development along the way,

Desktop publishing has been a huge part of what I have done for many clients and businesses for the better part of my 20 plus years of working with digital communications. Throughout my career I have work on various types of publications ranging from catalogs, magazine publications, to annual reports. I have a keen sense of current design standards for creating publications that meet current market trends. I hold a AS in Visual Communications and BS in Digital Communications and Graphic Design from the Art Institutes of PA.
