For a limited time, new subscribers to Design Tools Monthly can use this link to receive a free copy of “QuarkXPress 8 Essential Training“, written and presented by Jay Nelson (that’s me).
This DVD from Lynda.com contains more than 8 hours of video-based training, and includes the exercise files used in the videos! This is the only training that covers every feature in QuarkXPress 8. The movies are short (from 3-7 minutes each), and demonstrate one task or feature.
Design Tools Monthly is a brief, jargon-free monthly newsletter for graphic design professionals. It has no advertisements and has been subscriber-supported since 1992. Our goal is to summarize all the career-enhancing stories of the month for graphic designers, print professionals, and other design-industry pros. Rather than reading dozens of websites and magazines, you get all the news, bug fixes, updates, tips and reviews — from just 12 pages!
Design Tools Monthly is available in printed form, as well as a downloadable PDF. It also includes a special monthly “Software Closet” where we collect the best free utilities, XTensions, plug-ins, brushes, and fonts for professional graphic designers.
You can download a free sample issue and take advantage of this limited-time offer at www.design-tools.com/qxp8_video_offer.
