PC CentreEvent Details
We had a wonderful meeting at PC Centre with 15 people attending. The main topic was Digital Publishing: Promise & Pitfalls. The audience participated well with many questions about using InDesign, in general to leverage their current skill set. We viewed some examples of on-line digital publications:
We also discussed the various ways in which we can create digital publications for the web and for mobile devices using applications like iBooks Author and InDesign.
We talked about deployment options such as .folio subscriptions and iTunes. A concern that Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite might be beyond the reach of the aspiring designer was voiced; however, the general consensus was that InDesign was easier to use to develop publications, and that it would be better to learn to use it in the long run.
We briefly discussed Adobe's Muse project, with those who liked using master pages showing a particular interest in it.
Special Thanks to PC Centre for Hosting the meeting and providing snacks!
