Ycademy Seminar October 2015
From Inspiration to Asset Creation
So you are inspired, emotionally loaded and need the tools to express and share your creativity. The Ycademy October Seminar is introducing you to a modern way of creating high quality assets which will blow away your friends and readers.
What are we talking about? Well, in the past we have created books, eBooks, Calendars and and other media assets in the traditional way, ending up with some PDF file we could print and share. PDFs are good but no longer good enough. Real eBooks in EPUB format have taken over and today we are capable of creating EPUBs with reflowable content and convert them to fixed layout books no matter on which support we present them.
In other words, we edit a beautiful rich book, brochure or page containing rich media content from photos to audio or video and convert them to EPUB with reflowable content and then save the whole creation as a fixed layout book or page so that it will keep it’s layout no matter of whether we look at it on desktop, tablet or smartphone.
The fixed-layout EPUB preserves also all rich media features, complex layouts and interactivity!
Hey, it’s getting even better: you will learn how to create a fixed-layout EPUB ready to be published to Apple’s iBookstore.
Publishing from Print to Mobile
The seminar will cover the following matters:
- Refreshing InDesign basics (step by step workshop)
- Create a document for Print, Web and Digital Publishing (iPad, Kindle, etc)
- Work with Templates (Blurb and others)
- The mobile synchronization, creation and apps (time permitting).
Depending on how well participants remember our InDesign seminar and sessions from 2 or 3 years ago, we will find the time to create a calendar for 2016. Please prepare a picture for each month.
The Seminar will also inform about next generation cross platform and device publishing tools, which we will examine in the near future.
The Seminar will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 24 and 25, 2015.
We start at 1 pm London time and close at 9 pm London time. Please take into account that in Europe the time changes in the night from Saturday to Sunday: have a longer rest on Sunday morning!
