About David Creamer

At IDEAS, you get the co-owner, David Creamer

It surprises us how many people are only interested in when a class is running or how much it costs — but never think to ask about the background or qualifications of the trainer.

99% of our clients call us back again when they need additional training. We are very proud of that.

Creamer learned about design and production before computers took over, so he brings to the classes a background not found in many training companies. Learning about publishing, whether for print, web, or video, is more than just learning a software program; it is learning the principles behind the process.

With over 30 years of publishing experience, over 18 years of web experience, over 12 years of video experience, and over 20 years of successful training history, IDEAS can bring a wealth of knowledge to your desktop that cannot be duplicated by other training companies.

Simply knowing how to run a software program is not enough; one must know how to effectively USE it in a professional environment. Training from IDEAS goes beyond merely showing you what buttons to push. We teach the most effective use of publishing programs, including the plug-ins and extensions that help you design and produce with greater ease and efficiency.

Even if you never operated a computer or never used publishing software before, IDEAS can help you get “up and running” in less time than other classroom training programs.
