63 Free QuarkXPress 8 eSeminars to focus on Flash Design

Quark announces new series of free online training sessions for 2010 to master interactive design in QuarkXPress 8

DENVER - 3/9/2010 -

Quark Inc. announced today the dates and content for its free QuarkXPress® 8 eSeminar series in 2010. Multiple online training sessions will run every month in English, German and French and will focus on how designers can expand their skills to create interactive communications with Flash® in QuarkXPress 8.

“We had phenomenal take up of our QuarkXPress 8 eSeminars in 2009 and the overwhelming feedback from our users was that they loved what they saw for Flash and Web design in QuarkXPress 8 but they wanted more” said Gavin Drake, Quark Marketing Director. “So we’re excited to announce an advance schedule of 63 eSeminars in 2010, all focused on Flash and Web design in QuarkXPress 8.”

The first live sessions commence the week of the 22nd March with an introduction to Flash in QuarkXPress 8. As the year progresses there will be opportunity to get detailed guidance on a range of subjects such as working with video, creating rotating animations, moving objects and more.

“As digital media continue to grow in importance there is no better way for graphic designers focused on print, to make the move to Web and Flash design, extending their knowledge, skills and employability. It’s easy to learn, there’s no coding required and it’s also great fun” added Drake.

For a full list of dates and topics and to register for the first month of live sessions, please visit Quark’s website at http://www.quark.com/en/about/web_seminars . Note that the eSeminars will only open for registration a few weeks before each eSeminar so anyone interested should check back regularly.
