Only used in the Marketing Department for brochures, flyers, posters, billboards, email blasts, marketing, etc. It allows us to do design work in house instead of hiring an advertising company.
  • Typography, I enjoy having a tool that allows flexibility.
  • Page layout, particularly running from one text box to the next, creating style sheets, creating multi-page masters, etc.
  • When doing a booklet, this layout program is invaluable (sales flyers, promotional tools, creating a manual for a product, it can do all of those).
  • I was a Quark Express user for 15 years prior to making the brain switch. I love it now, took some getting used to but it does more than Quark did!
  • I wish iCloud apps, in general, would allow for flexibility to be used in multiple platforms without striping options.
  • My concerns are not with the tool when it's used on a Mac, but with it on other devices or platforms.
300 pg catalog, use style sheets across team platforms. 36 pg sale catalogs, can make designs with flair while not wasting time. 96 pg magazines, can re-flow text from page to pg. One page designs, I appreciate snap to guides, alignments. I love the program/app.

If creating any type of physical collateral, InDesign is the perfect option. It integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe products as well as many other outside products. A must have for anyone serious about top-quality design work in the physical realm.

Some of the elements are a little glitchy for me. My computer has 32 GB of RAM and it seemed a little clunky and slow sometimes.

Although my department uses Adobe InDesign for digital wireframes and prototypes, I understand that the design team loves InDesign for print layouts and graphic design. On the product team, Adobe InDesign meets our needs for creating and sharing prototypes that look exactly like the finished product. It can get expensive, as price increases per user, so InDesign may not be the best tool for a very large product / dashboard / frontend / backend team with many people who need access.
