InDesign is a software application that is used for page layout and desktop publishing. It was first released in 1999. According to Adobe, this app changed desktop publishing by making it accessible to more people.

For the first time, individuals, businesses, and organizations—large and small—could directly design, layout, and publish almost any content effortlessly.”

Designers can use it to create a wide variety of content including magazines, brochures, books, newspapers, business cards, stickers, and flyers.
