Program description, How to Make a Dynamic PDF Portfolio in InDesign:
Already have a portfolio website, but need a PDF version for sharing? Join designer and teacher Roman Villarreal to learn tips and tricks for laying out and designing a dynamic professional portfolio using InDesign and Creative Cloud. You’ll discover how to create a slick PDF portfolio that changes dynamically based on your needs and lets you stand out and get noticed by potential clients.

As Roman Villarreal shares his techniques, you’ll learn how to:
• Use Creative Cloud Libraries to create, store, and access assets from Photoshop and Illustrator
• Create layout templates with InDesign that let you rapidly swap out content to keep your portfolio fresh and relevant
• Explore timesaving tools to redesign your portfolio for each position to emphasize your qualifications, especially when applying for multiple jobs or projects

This is a preview of the presentation that will be delivered at Adobe Max.
