Digital Design using QuarkXPress 4
gives you the ability to fully understand QuarkXPress, while developing a knowledge of the rules of design and how computers can exploit them. Students with non-visual backgrounds can rapidly improve, producing worthy examples of pages that integrate text and image. Knowledge gives you choices.
The authors approach the subject of teaching QuarkXPress from all the necessary directions.
Learning software enables you to lay out a page but not to design one. So this does not take the reader through a series of steps reproducing designed pages - that teaches you nothing. Instead, the authors provide an objective understanding of what makes your designs work.
Introducing QuarkXPress 4 as an important technological leap for desktop publishing. This book provides step-by-step instructions for its use, and analyses current High Street magazines designed using QuarkXPress. Essential reading for students, trainers, practitioners, and anyone wishing to better understand and use desktop technology.
