Design Desk workshops are conducted in a computer classroom setting where you can learn how to create graphics, page layouts, or web animation. Our computer lab is located in the Gaithersburg, Rockville area of Maryland. View Directions

Class is from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The class size is limited to five students or less, which allows for individual attention. Classes are on both PC and Mac computer platforms. The cost for the training is $349 per day. All workshops are two days in length.

Since Design Desk conducts Adobe Authorized Training, we use the student manual, Classroom in a Book by Adobe. We offer training in several Adobe Creative Suites software packages including: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Dreamweaver, and Adobe Illustrator. We teach our workshops using version CC, however, you can request a workshop using CS6 or CS5. Just let the registrar know that you wish to take the training in CS6, and it will be arranged. Instruction in Adobe GoLive CS2 is by request only, and is considered a custom workshop.

Design Desk supplements the regular classroom book with additional lessons and techniques related to your specific job tasks. Because of this you are welcomed and encouraged to bring in your job related files to work on during class.
