DPS Overview, resources to the presentation

Posted on May 10, 2015 by Lukas Engqvist Last Activity on May 10, 2015

These resources were created for the presentation: CREATE DIGITAL PUBLICATIONS FOR MOBILE DEVICES WITH INDESIGN (6 May 2014)  Video Presentation Even though the DPS single edition is no longer available it is possible to create and upload a DPS folio to an iPad or iPhone and then interact with it using the Adobe DPS Viewer app. In the video it is explained the difference between a DPS that is tree structured (like a webpage) and the linear story of a Fixed Layout ePub. If the Articles are created and an InDesign book is used this makes it easy to structure the information so that it can be exported either as a DPS or as an EPUB (via the book flight menu). The assets are made available so that you may adapt and improve the presentation. The photographs are my own and you may use in educational setting. The video was student work, due to file size limit I did not include it so relink to any video (Adobe Premiere Clip is a perfect match for those that are new to video and want to ma... Read More

Adobe DPS Curriculum - Unit 8 - Create an app and publish folios

Posted on Apr 23, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on May 6, 2015

The focus of previous lessons has been on creating folio content. This is where most designers and production artists will spend most of their time. But a folio by itself isn’t very useful. A folio needs an app in which to reside. A folio will be “published” into an app. How to create an app and publish a folio is the focus of this lesson.  This is a lecture course. Because of the expense and complexity associated with getting developer accounts and certificates, these steps are best demonstrated and explained to students, rather than running a lab environment.  This is Unit 8 of the Adobe DPS Curriculum.

Adobe DPS Curriculum - Introduction

Posted on Apr 23, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Apr 24, 2015

Welcome to a comprehensive curriculum for teaching Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. This curriculum has been written specifically for teaching DPS in a secondary or post-secondary education setting. The curriculum has been prepared with graphic design students in mind. However, it can be used by journalism classes, photography classes, and students in related disciplines.  A moderate level of Adobe InDesign proficiency is assumed for the lab portions of this curriculum. The DPS steps are explicitly spelled out in the lab handouts, but it is assumed that students will be able to do basic InDesign page layout without step-by-step instruction. This is the Introduction to the Adobe DPS Curriculum. Find the full curriculum syllabus here.

Photography Book with inDesign - Lesson Plan

Posted on Mar 1, 2015 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Apr 10, 2015

Here is a lesson plan that I will be using for my Photography Class as their final assignment this year.  I have used this assignment in the past few years but not with inDesign.  I have used the free BLURB book creator desktop app that is downloadable from their website where we set up a store to print and sell extra copies of our student books as a fundraiser effort for my photography class to help offset costs for the course on things such as software renewal, photo printing paper, lighting equipment, etc.  We haven't raised a lot of money, because most are usually satisfied with their one copy, but I share the link with them to give to family and friends and tell them to encourage them to buy more copies as holiday gifts and to let them know that most of the proceeds go to support our class and to keep it going. As my class photography final I make them create a book designed from their best photos that they took this year.  They are required to make adjustments and manipulations to... Read More

Comic Sans Criminal

Posted on Feb 22, 2015 by Colin Byers Last Activity on Feb 22, 2015

Graphic designers have a plethora of fonts at their disposal. However, time and time again I see people using fonts incorrectly. Fonts have purpose, they are part of a designer's tool kit. Wouldn't you want your font to be representative of your brand, product or business? Well, if you do, then perhaps you should check out this link, it's good for a laugh, but it's no joke.

Advertising and Critical Thinking

Posted on Dec 7, 2014 by Craig Richardson Last Activity on Feb 16, 2015

Advertising and Critical Thinking Skills Advertisement is a powerful manipulative force as well as a powerful creative force. Learning how to identify the different strategies used by advertisers and how they are used is an important life skill and involves critical thinking skills.   One project involves having students first evaluate advertisements from different media and brainstorm on the different strategies they believe are being utilized and how effective they believe them to be and whether they are used alone or in tandem.   Second, students will learn about different advertising strategies by watching video and reading articles before creating a summary chart.   Third, students will use various media to create their own advertisements using digital manipulation including still photos and video as well as audio effects.   Fourth, we will explore our views on the ethics of digital manipulation and the inaccurate messages they convey in both advertising and other medi...
