Experience matters. People decide within seconds whether your app or website is useful and engaging. Crafting a great user experience requires more than just visual design. Adobe XD is an app for doing it all - wireframing, visual design, interaction design, prototyping, previewing and sharing. In this session, we will show you how to design and prototype a complete experience using the new Adobe XD. Learn tips and tricks to immediately be more productive creating a great user experience. You'll learn:
• Crafting a design with Adobe XD.
• Re-using assets from Photoshop and Illustrator.
• Creating an interactive prototype from your design.
• Seeing your design in action with Live Preview.
• Sharing the prototype with others to get feedback.
And don't stop learning once you walk out of the workshop. Keep going with Creative Cloud. Attendees will be entered for a chance to win a one-year Creative Cloud membership. At the end of the workshop, AIGA Birmingham will announce the winner.
