If you ever create multi page layouts such as brochures, newsletters or booklets there is an application that is made for you.

However, once you use an application that is built specifically for this type of project you will wonder why you didn't start using it sooner. In this article we will look at what InDesign is for and highlight some of the features that set it apart from other applications.
