The #1 InDesign Resource!!

I absolutely love the InDesign Secrets podcast! The hosts David and Anne-Marie are the world’s best InDesign instructors. I highly recommend attending CreativePro Week, a 5 day educational conference run by the hosts, which also includes The InDesign Conference as part. By listening to this podcast, you will become a better graphic designer.

Love the new format

I’ve been a podcast listener for a few years now. I’m so glad you’ve decided to increase the episodes. I love it! Excellent information.

One of the Best Podcast in the Creative Space

The InDesign Secrets Podcast is one of the best shows for creatives that I’ve listened to. It was this show that actually inspired me to do my Podcast. Both Anne-Marie and David are creative who have tremendous insight to offer, and are very generous about it. Some of the most down to earth Creative Pros you’ll ever engage with!
