InDesign Workshop Day 2
Intermediate Course

Thursday, April 5 

Join SMPS Fort Worth for an in-depth InDesign Workshop. This course is presented by Julie Shaffer, CPSM, a 20-year A/E/C marketer and Adobe Certified Expert in InDesign CC 2015 (she's one of only four in Texas!). 

Julie will lead registrants through time-saving techniques to create A/E/C proposals faster and more efficiently, and how to improve resumes, org charts and other common industry-required proposal components. This course is intended for INTERMEDIATE LEVEL users and will not cover InDesign basics, as users should already be comfortable using the program.

Advanced InDesign CC 2018 for Proposals will cover:

  • Efficient Ways to Create Project Sheets, Resumes, Schedules, and Org charts with:
    • Paragraph, Character, and Object Styles (with new features!)
    • Next and Nested Styles
    • Cell and Table Styles
  • Scripts
  • Table of Contents (and creative ways to use the feature)
  • CC Libraries
  • Custom Dictionary
  • Tips and Tricks

Need another reason to join us? Similar online courses that are NOT catered to the A/E/C industry go for TRIPLE the cost. SMPS Fort Worth is thrilled to be able to provide our members with educational events that are relevant and specifically geared toward our industry.

Julie will be available for private 1 on 1 training sessions after each Training Session – slots will be filled in 30 minute increments. Please contact Julie Shaffer at to schedule a time slot.

Hands-on training so plan to bring your laptop to follow along.
