InDesign and Professonal Pracitce

March 25, 2011 By Paul Yeatman

Wednesday night we began to learn InDesign.  This is like Publisher, and a whole lot of other stuff.  To quote some podcasts we listed to, it’s ‘kinda cool’ in regards to what it can do.

Thursday night we began professional practice. Here we learn that there are about 250 advertising mobs in the country, 6000 jobs and 1700 graduates a year.  Makes me wonder how the Diploma I am doing gets a vocational help fee thing assigned to it.

Anyhow, we also learnt about freelancing, other forms of jobs, how much to charge and how the ‘free pitch’ is worth a stoning for those who do it.

I also added some extra info to my webpages.  The colours still suck, but I’ll fix them at some stage.
