It is the end program where all of the elements in your project (photos, graphics, logos, text, charts, tables, etc) come together for layout and final output. In addition, InDesign can export HTML to transform your layouts for the web and can also publish content suitable for tablet devices. It has the capability to create interactive PDF or Flash files with hyperlinks, video, sound, animation, etc. for spectacular digital presentation materials.

InDesign gives you all the tools you need to design and print a professional looking product, giving you the competitive edge in your corporate communications. It makes repurposing your print designs for the web effective and easy.

Use InDesign to create: catalogs, ads, flyers, direct mail, proposals, spec sheets, brochures, calendars, packaging, posters, cd covers, letterhead, business cards, sales aids, billboards, social media ads, trade show displays, user manuals, books, in-store displays, and much, much more.
