Meet the Instructor:

Adam Pratt joined Adobe Systems in 2000 and is currently a Senior Systems Engineer working with all of the Creative Suite Products, including InCopy and InDesign. He consults with creative professional customers regarding their publishing workflows and helps ensure a smooth transition to InDesign and the Creative Suite.

Adam is an Adobe Certified Expert in every application in the Creative Suite and a Certified Print Specialist, as well as a Certified Web Specialist. He was also the world’s first Creative Suite Master for CS1 and CS2.

Adam recently finished co-authoring his fifth book, “The Adobe InCopy CS2 Book” for Adobe Press, frequently tech edits books for several publishers, and occasionally writes for a few design-related magazines.
