BOSTON (July 25, 2006)–Aquent, the world’s largest marketing and creative services staffing firm, announced it is hosting a series of creative conferences developed for design professionals to learn the ins and outs of InDesign® CS2, Adobe’s award-winning page layout and design software, and how to maximize its integration with other Creative Suite 2 products.
“InDesign Inside Out” is a free half-day creative conference touring cities across the U.S. and is being hosted in conjunction with Adobe® and the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts).
Adobe representatives will be on hand at the event to give tips on how to integrate InDesign with other Adobe products and explain how the recent merger between Adobe and Macromedia affects creative departments. Aquent will discuss how to find highly skilled InDesign and Creative Suite talent.
Other key points covered at the conference include-
- how to enhance productivity with existing products,
- techniques to increase overall efficiency and
- candid assessments from professionals who have successfully migrated to InDesign.
“Managers understand that people are a key element to successfully implementing any new software tool,” explains Eric Wanta, global VP of marketing for Aquent. “Through our strong relationship with Adobe, and our deep understanding of InDesign, we know how to find the skilled talent companies need to migrate seamlessly to InDesign.”
Over the past few years, the design community has rapidly adopted InDesign as the new standard for layout and design. Leading magazine publishers, including Australian Consolidated Publishing, Future Network USA, Hearst Magazines, Lonely Planet Publications, McDougal- Littell, Meredith Corporation and Rodale Inc. have switched to standardize their design and layout processes on InDesign.
“The publishing community has recognized InDesign as a leap forward in productivity and creativity for designers and production artists,” said Will Eisley, group product manager of Adobe Creative Suite Layout and Illustration Products. “Thanks to Aquent, this conference series will further spread the word about InDesign and its ability to transform publishing work flows.”
The “InDesign Inside Out” road show will be held in the following cities: Charlotte, N.C., on July 25; New York City, N.Y., on July 26; Boston, Mass., on August 1; Washington, D.C. on August 2; San Francisco, Calif., on August 31; and San Jose, Calif. on September 14.
