Ceci teaches in the Typography II course at the University of Buenos Aires. The course covers editorial design, which is book and magazine design, cover art, page layout. Students start the course generally without any experience with page layout software (e.g., Quark, InDesign). So, Ceci prepared this short (10 page) guide to InDesign as a beginning tutorial for the students.
Currently, the guide is only in Spanish but we’re going to be doing an English translation of it soon and making it available. Also, we will be posting more InDesign tips and tutorials to this blog in the future.
For the students one of the benefits of this guide is that Spanish-language books about design and computing are not as common as English-language titles. Even in Buenos Aires, which has a ton of bookstores, it’s not easy to find good books on technology in Spanish. That’s quite frustrating for the people who live and work here, particularly since Buenos Aires is a fairly high-tech community (as much as any large North American city).
So, here’s the link: Introductory Guide to InDesign (Spanish) [PDF].
