Course Feedback

Huge amount of content covered and very amusingly presented. Good structure, good pace and all questions answered.

I just wanted to say thanks again for the InDesign training course that I took earlier this week. Back in the office today, I've spent a few hours designing my first document. I'm absolutely delighted to find that I've remembered what I need to know and haven't hit any major frustrations... yet! As far as I'm concerned, this is down to the hands-on nature of the course which included plenty of practice rummaging around inside InDesign and creating documents of varying complexities. Plus being given the time to play and have fun with design in the process, which is a great way to learn. Now all I need to do is play with it more. Onwards and upwards, I hope!

Well thought out - lots of learning interspersed with breaks and chatter about individual situations. I thoroughly enjoyed learning this software and now feel confident using it at work. Very nice personable tutor, great software package which is intuitive and fun to use - well paced teaching.

The real life examples and plethora of hints and tips are invaluable. Being taught by someone who uses the software professionally was very effective. The nature of the course meant that it was quite free-form with questions and answers; my next project in InDesign will be quicker, easier and look more professional.

InDesign is a gigantic programme but I feel that I have learnt enough not to be scared of it! The course gave a good broad introduction. A good number of people and a good mix of interests - so questions that I wouldn't have asked were raised.

I learnt lots of things I didn't know I needed to know. I can already see how much time it will save, can't wait to get started! I enjoyed the chance to play with practical applications and gained lots of new information.

So useful and some brilliant examples, it was a great pace as well. It took us through the journey of InDesign with examples, and our questions were answered along the way. I have so many ideas to take back to my company - I can't wait to start.

We covered plenty with time to practice and ask questions. Basic through to advanced material including colour. All very useful for everyday application.

I cannot emphasise enough how helpful this course was! It was ideal for the audience as the trainer had an excellent knowledge of all things InDesign, he tailored it to our needs and it flowed really well.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking of using InDesign. It has really helped me improve the way I use InDesign and produce work!

I took an InDesign course with Sharon. She was a brilliant trainer, really lively, full of life and inspiring. Being taught by a practising graphic designer, who is currently using and continually learning about the software, meant that all the information was practical, and up to date, including tips and tricks in using the software. She even supplied us with a great little booklet of all the information covered and more, so if I can’t remember anything, it’s all there to jog my memory. I trained as a stand-in designer, so this is particularly useful as I won’t be using the software every day. We packed so much into two days it was exceptional value for money, I went from zero knowledge to having the ability to do almost anything I wanted in just a few hours. Many thanks!

A great course with an energetic, enthusiastic trainer who knows the subjects she trains inside out. Sharon was always willing to answer the easy and complicated questions posed to her. Thanks.

Great course! Great trainer! Great location! Love Silicon Beach

A totally brilliant course - covers everything and more! Perfect if you have experience of Photoshop - but adaptable & flexible enough if you don't.

Very accurate, fun and interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed the two day course and would definitely recommend it.

Brilliant course, lots of tea, what more could you want?!

Excellent course, with an excellent trainer. Learnt everything I needed to know to be able to make the documents I needed. 10 out of 10. Highly recommended.

An enjoyable training course, with easy to follow teaching. Have left with new found confidence with this software.

Excellent, informative and fun. I'm actually looking forward to getting to work on Monday morning so I can start implementing everything we covered!

Great course, I can go away feeling confident and happy with what I learnt. Would definitely recommend.

A whirlwind course with some great content and a chance to apply what we've learned. Taught by a real master!

Excellent! Sharon is full of character and made the course really exciting and fun. Learnt everything I wanted and more. Thank you!

Awesome course! Can't wait to start exploring!

Another A++ course - I have learnt so much with Sharon and really advanced my skills and knowledge of the software. Lots of practice and great friendly facilities. Just excellent.

The InDesign course was excellent. I am self-taught and the couse confirmed I have been on the right track, but revealed so much more! The tutor was knowledgable, helpful and positive despite the fact that I am not a trained designer. It was tailored to people like me and a great foundation for mastering the basics of InDesign.

Brilliant course, learnt alot more than expected in the two days!

Enthusiastic tutor that gives a thorough overview of InDesign and transforms what, at first glance seems like a complicated package; to a manageable package. Intensive two days that has given me the confidence to apply my learnings into practice.
