This Week in InDesign Articles, Number 57
I just got my copy of InDesign CS5.5! It’s sitting here, all shiny in its shrink wrapped box. It’s always such a bittersweet moment… trying to open the plastic wrap without breaking a fingernail or tooth… well, while I figure this out, take a look at these great links!
- I’m really enjoying reading Pam Pfiffner’s Best of the Blogs at CreativePro, including this fun one. Definitely check out the links to 892 Unique Ways to Partition a 3×4 Grid, innovative resumes, and more. (Disclosure: I’ve known Pam for something like 20 years! I guess I met her when she was about 12…) ;)
- I don’t usually blog about fonts, but I just noticed this new font called Akko from Monotype and I’m really enjoying it!
- Just noticed these short InDesign training videos. Of course, I have a few of my own at lynda.com, but it’s always interesting to see what other folks are doing!
- So how do the folks at Business Week produce their magazine? Here’s a video!
- Dan Rodney has a new update for his $20 Make Book Jacket script. Cool stuff!
- So Obama asked the state of Hawaii to release his birth certificate, right? FOX News interviewed our friend Jean-Claude Trembley about the veracity of the image. Unfortunately, the reporter got a few things wrong. Here’s Jean-Claude’s blog post about the experience, and how he really feels. (No, this has nothing to do with InDesign, but how could I resist including something so topical?!)
- Should you link or embed your images? That’s the question posed in this blog post.
- By the way, here’s a data sheet (PDF) that shows what’s new in InDesign CS5.5.
- Curious about the Adobe DPS tablet-publishing solution? If you’re an InDesign Magazine subscriber, you already saw this article about the Scientific American ipad app that Bob Levine, Mordy Golding, and Scott Citron produced. If you haven’t read it, though, check it out, now that it’s up for free at creativepro.com!
- How are large businesses taking advantage of digital tablet publishing? Here’s a fun overview from Adobe on what some organization, such as the US Marine Corp and Credit Suisse are doing.
- Meanwhile, if you’re more in an HTML5 kind of mood (for making ipad/iphone apps), the Baker Framework 2.0 has been released!
Okay, package opened… next step: Install!
