Boston (March 27, 2007)—Aquent Graphics Institute (AGI), an Aquent firm that provides training, consulting, and support relating to print, Web, video, and mobile publishing, today announced a series of training resources in support of the forthcoming Adobe Creative Suite 3 product line. AGI is an Adobe Authorized Training Provider and member of the Adobe Solutions Network.
AGI’s team of Adobe Certified Instructors has produced nine books to help users get the most out of the upgraded Adobe CS3 software products. The first five books, part of the Digital Classroom series, include a DVD with lesson files and video tutorials and cover all applications in the Design Premium version of Adobe’s Creative Suite 3. They will be published by O’Reilly and include Flash® CS3 Digital Classroom, Photoshop® CS3 Digital Classroom, Dreamweaver® CS3 Digital Classroom, InDesign®CS3 Digital Classroom, and Illustrator® CS3 Digital Classroom.
AGI’s instructors have also updated their best-selling Adobe Creative Suite for Dummies for the new version. These six books are all available for pre-order at Amazon, and at leading booksellers, including Borders and Barnes & Noble, where they will be on bookshelves shortly after the software is released.
Along with these six completed titles, AGI is also developing an advanced series of books for the CS3 applications to be published later this year. These books will be complemented by training videos, available at www.oreilly.com, to help users take full advantage of the CS3 applications.
In addition to these books, AGI also announced a traveling seminar series and a major conference. Through the summer, AGI will be offering a 20-city seminar tour across North America and Europe at which users can learn about Adobe’s CS3 applications in sessions led by their expert authors and instructors.
AGI’s CRE8 conference, to be held in Orlando, FL May 9-10, 2007 provides yet another opportunity for professionals to get an in-depth understanding of Adobe’s CS3 applications. “Many of the speakers have been busy working with the Creative Suite 3 applications, writing books and developing content,” said Christopher Smith, president of AGI. “Conference attendees will be among the first to get an in-depth look at Creative Suite 3 and the ways it can benefit them in print, on-line, and with PDF.”
