Welcome to the Introduction to Quark Web site. Within these pages you will find all sorts of information. If you click on the college logo above you will be taken to the College of Lake County web site.

Please note the important dates section of the site above. Here is listed the dates for all projects that are due, class quizzes, midterms and finals. Students are expected to turn in all projects on time. Projects turned in late loose a whole grade for each day that they are late.

Below the important date panel there are various links to Quark XPress Internet resources. Want to know all of the keyboard shortcuts for Quark? Click on the Quark XPress Tech Information link above.

The Quark XTensions link will take you to Quark's XTension's page where you can find out more about what an XTension is and how they add additional functionality to Quark XPress.

The Quark Resources link will take you to a page that were put together that has links to sites that are interesting or insightful to either the design process or Quark XPress. I will be adding to this as I find information that might be enlightening in some way.

On the links to the left you will find class information categorized by class date. This is where you will find your reading assignments, review sheets as well as your extra credit questions.

I will also place links to what I like to call "Internet field trips" these are links that are pertinent to the class each week. These articles are vital to understanding how to complete your design review.

All handouts are available in pdf format for download. Adobe created the pdf format as part of their Adobe Acrobat program. The file was created to be compatible with Adobe Acrobat Reader. In case you don't have the Acrobat reader (which will let you open and view the files) you can download it for free by clicking on this link.

To download the syllabus, click here. To download the tool box and measurement palette handout click here. If you have a question about the class you can always email me. I try to answer email within one business day.

Again, welcome to the class. I hope that you find the class a fun and interesting experience!
