This Month in InDesign Articles, February 2017
It’s snowing here, near Seattle. And I’m reading about the high heat in the Southern Hemisphere. And an old vocal warmup from my early theater days comes to mind: “Whether the weather be cold, whether the weather be hot, we’ll be together whatever the weather… whether we like it or not!”
It reminds me that no matter what happens, we’re all in this together, folks! So here’s some fun InDesign-related reading (and watching) for us all:
- This is a fun short video story about the Goudy font and Syracuse University (thanks to Lindsey Martin for sending it to me!)
- Adobe has started a new once-a-month series of Design Trends on their blog. Here’s another one.
- If you’re into type and typography, and you can get to New York City this June, you should definitely check out the Typographics festival at Cooper!
- Mike Witherell has some great InDesign resources here, including a troubleshooting guide, keyboard shortcuts guide, and more.
- Need to convert an InDesign document to a Word document? Stefano Bernardi shows you a few good solutions here.
- I don’t know how I missed this little article called “All you need to know about using XML with Adobe InDesign“
- Eddy Hagen’s brain is full of amazing information about print and print workflows. Here’s a piece he wrote about color management. And here’s another one on reprinting “brand” colors (with CMYK vs spot colors).
- Are you in the Seattle area? In-house design? You’ll love this event at the end of March. Use the code CREATIVEPRO15 for 15% off!
- What do you know about collotype printing? Well, if you want to learn more about this high-quality and rare process, check this out!
- Katie Peairs wrote a great little piece about her experience at the Color ’16 conference in Phoenix, with an interview with Don Hutcheson, the inventor of the G7 methodology.
- I just discovered a new page of InDesign scripts. I haven’t tried them yet, but some of them look interesting!
