  • Training

    Sometimes your organization needs more focused training than a seminar full of people can offer. That’s when you need Russell to come onsite for some training targeted to your specific needs. Whether it’s converting your editorial department from Quark to InDesign, teaching your ad department some new design tricks in Illustrator or creating ads for the web using Flash, Russell can create custom training to get the most from his time.

    He is an Adobe Certified Instructor in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator and teaches PDF for Print Production, Flash Animation as well as QuarkXPress. Whew!

    Through some introductory interviews and seeing sample work, Russell can get a good idea of what your needs are and suggest class duration, topics and level (basic, intermediate or advanced). He often works with customers on odd schedules, too, working with day, night and weekend shifts.
