Adobe’s Free InDesign Templates Now Available at InDesignSecrets
When InDesign CS5 shipped, one of the most common complaints we heard was “where are all those free templates that used to come with the program?” Adobe had discarded them from InDesign and the Creative Suite. Perhaps they were hard to update? Perhaps it was some economic or logistical decision? We really don’t know.
But we’re happy to announce that after a year of discussing, wrangling, debating, and more email exchanges than we care to think about, we have received permission from Adobe to make these available to you, our InDesignSecrets readers.
Of course, we can argue over the quality or aesthetics of the templates. After all, some are sort of strangely built, or don’t make use of styles or other InDesign features as well as we’d hope. But we see templates as just a “starting point,” ready for you to make better. And we do believe that a number of these will be very helpful for any InDesign user, especially beginners who need to get up and running quickly.
In time we will be making more templates available here at indesignsecrets. But this is a pretty good start!
