Textbook and Software:

Williams, Robin. The Non-Designer's Design Book. 4th ed. (NY: Peachpit, 2015).

You may use any software IF it exports files in usable formats. PageMill 3.0 is a good introduction to the Adobe world (barebones but has the distinctive Adobe look and feel) and are available for free download. Trial version of Adobe's InDesign may be downloaded from www.adobe.com, but you should wait until later in the semester because the trial version will only be active for one month. I will provide the PageMill software during the first class session or by arrangement with online students.
