If you’re a Creative Professional looking to solidify and advance your personal knowledge and skill in industry standard layout software, then you’re in the right place!
What is Creativedge™?
Creativedge™ is continued education for the Creative Professional. Our goal is to help creatives, graphic designers, graphic artists, marketers, anyone who desires to dig deeper and truly learn, bring their imaginations into reality. Using the “I do, we do, you do” method, our instructors deliver Adobe certified training in industry standard Adobe programs. By giving these professionals knowledge of the tools readily available to them we are empowering the creative mind to elevate, excel and advance.
The Creativedge™ program has two levels of courses:
InDesign Basecamp is the Creativedge premiere InDesign course. The topics covered in this class prepare students to use InDesign in today’s workplace. Using both lecture and out-of-class activity, Basecamp provides a comprehensive overview of Adobe’s most popular publishing program. No matter how you plan to use InDesign, Basecamp will provide a solid understanding of how the software works and how to use the tools to create professional looking documents and layouts.
Summit courses are higher level classes offered by Creativedge™. Covering less information but at a more elevated skill level these courses cater to advanced level clientele. Courses offerings will be dynamic and change with Adobe’s latest releases. Students with more specific needs will be more likely to find these courses helpful.

Adam joined the Modern Litho team in 2014 as a prepress “specialist” and we had no idea how true that title would be!

Coming from a marketing and graphic design background, he brings 8+ years of industry experience. His knowledge in InDesign and other Adobe programs is unsurpassed within the company and he has even earned InDesign Expert status with Adobe. Currently serving as the Creative Media Coordinator, Adam holds a Bachelor of Communications Journalism from Culver Stockton College.
Adam’s hobbies include catching up on the latest Star Trek saga (he’s a serious Trekkie) and defending his self-proclaimed reign as the Super Mario 64 Champion! And when he’s away from the screen, desktop, laptop, TV or otherwise, he is a doting husband and father of two.
Josh is a true graphic communications “industry professional”. A member of the Modern Litho team for over 10 years, he has proven himself integral to the prepress department where he uses his “artistic” eye to help our clients achieve the highest quality printed products.

With a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Lincoln University, he has advanced quickly and now serves as the Creative Services Team Lead.
