What is InDesign, anyway?
Like many Adobe apps, InDesign can be intimidating for first-timers. There are a lot of weird things that don’t look like Photoshop in there, and if you don’t know much about print, it’s tough to break into
- There’s Photoshop, a program made for manipulating raster images in a number of ways.
- Illustrator lets you work with vector graphics, tweaking and tuning the geometry of the designs however you like.
- Premiere is for working with video and is one of the main tools for video editors across the country.
- So then InDesign is a tool that lets you put together parts of all three to create either physical or digital products that use a paginated layout.
I’ve used InDesign to build magazines, brochures, resumes, sponsor pitches, and a number of different designs before, and most of them have either been professionally printed or delivered in a high-quality PDF.
What it’s not built for, however, is manipulating text and graphics. It is not a word processor. If you want to write your print publication, then either use InCopy — Adobe’s writing app — or Microsoft Word. If you want to tweak your graphics, then go with Photoshop or Illustrator. Use the right tool for the job, basically.
Now that you’ve got that figured out, where’s the next best place to get going?
Start with a template
A template is, in essence, a completed document. Yes, it’s filled with dummy text and content that you may not want. But by using that as your guide, you can figure out a lot of things quickly. Click on objects. Right click on them. See what happens. Slowly but surely, you’ll figure out how the nuts and bolts of an InDesign doc (.indd) go together.

Lastly to wrap it up
I’ve used InDesign over the years, and even though many of us work in a mostly digital medium, knowing how to work in print is still a very handy skill. It lets you approach things from different angles that you might never have considered. They may say that print is dead, but as long as people are using InDesign, it never will be.
