A large number of different software courses for Macintosh

A longer course in typography 1986

I used to be a registered FileMaker Pro developer and FSA member (FileMaker Solutions Alliance) but I have not had time the last years to actually do anything in FileMaker, so my knowledge there is resting.

Webmaster and Web Editor

I did and have done the website for DD Data Distribution all by myself since it was first launched in the mid-90th. I do both the content (writing about 95 percent of all texts, including translations from English), the navigation and organisation of the site, imaging etc. The look and feel is not my creation but within the framework for the graphical design that was decided on company level quite long ago. I mainly use Adobe GoLive and support software like Macromedia FireWorks, Photoshop, Illustrator and some other for the website.

For fours years in the middle of the 80th I had a regular position as local politician and spent all my free time and evenings in meetings or reading up on whatever was on the agenda for decisions in the local community.

I regularly hold courses in the following applications:

– QuarkXPress, basic and advanced
– Adobe InDesign, basic. advanced and for former users of PageMaker and QuarkXPress
– Adobe PageMaker, basic and advanced
– Adobe Illustrator, basic
– Adobe GoLive, basic and advanced
– Adobe Acrobat, basic and for differnet areas of use
– FileMaker Pro, basic and advanced
– MS Word, basic and advanced
– MS PowerPoint, basic
– Macromedia FreeHand basic
– Adobe Photoshop basic
– Mac OS X for regular users

Have also passed courses in DreamWeaver and Flash 5.

Mainly self-educated in web production, layout and imaging. My father was a commerical artist and sign designer and I have grown up with imaging and correct typography. I have always been a passionate photographer and have drawn since I was a child.

My passion is the Mac, typography, imaging, layout and web. Those are the areas I enjoy the most and know the best. What I don't know but need to know to be able to do something I learn when I need it. It is great fun to learn new things and test new software and new versions of software.

I am also able to diagnose and solve system errors and other system related problems and reinstall a system and its other software on a Mac when needed. I have been responsible for all the Macs in our room for courses including installations and everything else for many years. I do not do hardware repairs and hardwareinstallations.

If anything is unclear.... ask me.
I of course have certificates and such for everything.
