This course on designing brochures by Nigel French is a great help when trying to plan a brochure design. He helps explain some setup features that if you take the time to implement will help speed up your design process. He also introduced me to object styles which I knew existed but did not know where it was appropriate to apply.(he used it to quickly format all the image frames.)
He also gave me some clarity on how the captions tool worked, and showed off how the gap tool can help keep your document aligned and spaced properly without much fuss. I am glad that I took the time to watch this before I got to far into my design, it should help speed up my design process.
