InDesign & Websites: A Compendium of Reasons it Works
presented by Sharlene King

As an industry, we fall into habits like relying on software that may be antiquated. Responsive websites are evolving from rare into standard. The platforms users have to choose is ever-increasing in variety. The way we interact with a website today is different tomorrow.

We need to reconsider our software for its strengths and weaknesses rather than rely upon what’s familiar for the sake of familiarity. As designers, we need to shake ourselves from habit and adapt. In this talk, we’ll cover reasons why you should use InDesign for web design, how to calmly explain your conversion to a developer, how to ensure your client doesn’t completely break down into pure panic, and other surefire ways to be the most interesting person in your office by being novel in your software choices. There might even be some talk about CS6 versus CS5.

    In case anyone missed the URLs for the demo file and the presentation: http://indesign.tinytank.net/cs...­ or .../cs4.zip

    The demo file contains a working InDesign package with an example set-up. Feel free to use it as you like.

    Sharlene is using InDesign in a really intelligent way. It was a revelation to see that program answers a lot of ambiguous issues for developers inherent in Photoshop.

    Thanks to Sharlene's presentation I picked up some helpful tip to better organize files work with developers and archive my files. And thank you Sharlene for the demo files!

    Thought the presentation was really interesting. Was disappointed in the ambiguous expectations of the crowd, though.
