The Advantage Center al­so fea­tures 25 videos tu­to­ri­als from Terry White, the co-author of InDesign CS/CS2 Killer Tips and au­thor of “Getting Started with InDesign CS2” (DVD) who has gained a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the lead­ing in­struc­tors in Adobe Creative Suite.

The new Advantage Center will give those con­sid­er­ing InDesign over QuarkXPress nuts-and-bolts demon­stra­tions of sim­ple to com­plex tasks, ad­vanced tech­niques and im­proved work­flow in InDesign.

Dave Moser, Executive Publisher Layers, states that the mag­a­zine is pro­duced in InDesign and points out the con­cept of the Advantage Center.

“We cer­tain­ly be­lieve that the fu­ture of page lay­out be­longs to InDesign sim­ply due to all the amaz­ing things a de­sign­er can do with it.” Moser re­marks. “Because of that, we took and long and care­ful look at the fea­tures of both QuarkXPress and InDesign in real-world sit­u­a­tions. What we found was that InDesign pro­vid­ed the most ad­vanced, easy-to-master en­vi­ron­ment for the cre­ative pro­fes­sion­al to take their de­sign skills to the next lev­el.”
