Take a tour of an advertising agency, and discuss InDesign PDF Blow-Out

The September 20 meeting will be a two-parter. First we will learn about PDFs, then we will take a tour of a real live advertising agency.

Markzware’s Doug Rosen will talk about making PDFs, including typical gotchas and how to solve them. He will then preside over a robust open Q&A session. Be sure to bring all the questions you’ve had about PDFs but didn’t know whom to ask. The first half of the evening will end with a demonstration of PDF2DTP for Adobe InDesign, Markzware’s brand new utility that converts any standard PDF to a fully editable InDesign document.

Following Rosen’s presentation, Jeffrey Schimsky will lead a tour of the West Coast headquarters of Designory, a global full-service agency with offices in Tokyo, Chicago and Nashville. The journey will begin with a presentation of a live InDesign job presented by Designory graphic artist Kirby Williams. Then we’ll see the innards of an agency whose clients include HP, Columbia Pictures, Audi, ABC, Disney, Dreamworks, Nike Lockheed, Warner Bros. Paramount and Nissan, among others. Whew! That’s a lot to pack into two and a half hours!

    I'm in Van Nuys would I be the farthest? Ha ha, maybe not. But sorry I can't make it. Will be teaching a photo class then, that Ron and Deborah encouraged me to do. Thank you both. Will you have a meeting like this again? It really sounds interesting. Would have loved to have gone.

    Wish you had more meetings in West LA. Long Beach is too far.

      If you are close to the Expo line, it connects with the Blue Line heading to Long Beach. The 1st street stop is within walking distance.

      Andrew, if you can make it down to LAX, you can ride down with me... ?
