Having not used Adobe Indesign since I was a first year in Carmarthen school of art and design over 3 years, I thought it would be useful to remind myself of how it works.

Matt talked us through creating a A3 leaflet using text from an online article and stock images the we had to download. This tutorial covered the basics but essentially everything needed to create a standard Indesign document.

He showed us how to set up a document
