Designing Posters with Adobe InDesign

Adobe InDesign is the best tool to lay out posters, newsletters, brochures, and other print media. You can easily include text, photos, and illustrations from other programs and add special effects such as shadows and feathering. You can also precisely position text and make it flow from box to box and around images. The class will focus on producing a poster on IT's large-format printer, a common presentation format at conferences, including the Summer Science Research Poster Presentations in September.
