Hello, I am James Fritz, and welcome to InDesign CS5 Interactive Documents and Presentations. Like most designers, I have been overwhelmed by the demands of learning new software and techniques. If you have been struggling with the design limitations of presentation software--like PowerPoint or Keynote-- or been confused by the complexities of creating interactive documents with Flash, this is the course for you. We'll be using InDesign with Acrobat Pro and Flash Professional to create a series of projects, including a presentation, a micro site, and an interactive catalog.
The beginning of the series is a little different than most. It includes a few examples of what kinds of digital documents are being produced right now with InDesign. I will walk you through all the steps needed to create a compelling presentation, with animated introductions, a custom navigation system, and page transitions. Next, I'll teach you how to build a micro site with navigation buttons, sound hotspots, (Bees buzzing.) and interactive maps. Finally, I'll pass along a lot of tips throughout the course, tips that will help you create and edit your digital documents just as easily as you work with print documents.
Our future is digital. It's time to get onboard and build an amazing design project. Let's take a look at InDesign CS5 Interactive Documents and Presentations.
