Who uses Desktop Publishing with Microsoft Word?

The same DTP skills and software used for common paper and book publishing are sometimes used to create graphics for point of sale displays, promotional items, trade show exhibits, retail package designs and outdoor signs. Although what is classified as “DTP software” is usually limited to print and PDF publications, DTP skills aren’t limited to print. The content produced by desktop publishers may also be exported and used for electronic media. The job descriptions that include “DTP”, such as DTP Artist, often require skills using software for producing e-books, web content, and web pages, which may involve web design or user interface design for any graphical user interface.
