UI & UX Web Design using Adobe XD - User Experience Design

via Skillshare



Hi there, my name is Dan & I am an Adobe Certified Instructor. Together we are going to learn how to use Adobe XD. We will use this UX and UI design tool to create a beautiful User Interface & streamlined User Experience.  

During our course we will use an actual freelance project which I am working on. It’s a project that needs both a website interface & a mobile app, so it will give you a good idea of how to manage your own UX projects.  

This course is aimed at people new to design & user experience. We will start right at the beginning and work our way through step by step. 

First I’ll show you how to construct a good brief & UX persona. Then you will learn to create simple wireframes, from there we will learn how to implement colours & images correctly in your designs. You will learn learn the do's and don'ts of choosing fonts for web & mobile apps. We will also cheat a little by exploring pre-made UI kits to speed up our workflow. 

We will build & prototype both a website design and a mobile app design, connecting pages and also adding full interactivity ready for user testing. I will share with you all the secret tricks inside Adobe XD that help you speed up repetitive tasks and we will work all the way through to exporting correct files & creating your design specs. 

There is a project for you to complete during this class which will help develop your skills and will give you something for your own portfolio.
