Question from michelle b.
Hi, will this class teach me how to design my letters in a swirly way or curve design? Also, I'm interested in learning more about photoshop and what it is. Thanks,
Answer from Darwin V. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
HI Michelle, We will teach enough of the basics in this course to be able to work it out with an additional tutorial, but we don’t actually get into learning how to type on a path in this class. We do however cover this in our full 18-hour InDesign Bootcamp: As for Photoshop, we teach a similar 6-hour Photoshop in a Day, and an 18-hour Photoshop Bootcamp.
Question from Dave
Do I need to have a computer with InDesign already installed or do they provide computers with it installed?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! The school has classrooms full of computers, Mac and PC. Each computer is loaded with software and has a 19-inch monitor. Noble Desktop always has up-to-date equipment in their state-of-the-art classrooms.

The class started out well, but the instructor took things up a notch or two and I was lost at a certain point. I'm a beginner, but it seemed like the objective was to get through the whole book instead of making sure every one was up to speed.

The class equips with everything that you need to know to make something as simple as a letter to a magazine spread. Our instructor, Michele, is clearly experienced in the field and offers personal tips with the program and is able to answer all questions thrown at her.
