It was fun! My first finished online course :) I also liked some Photoshop tips in XD course and I definitely will continue learning with Dan.

Even without knowing Dan personally, you can tell he is a very nice and friendly person who does his best to instruct you with all he has to offer. Good projects throughout the course to help build up your portfolio and train the fundamentals for UI. The course is very good for beginners that are starting from scratch and teaches you how to maneuver from other adobe suites to XD for those that know photoshop, illustrator, and in-design. 5 stars, worth the purchase. Highly recommended!

Another Dan's course about a Adobe software I didn't know and now I know. You'll learn here all you need to know about Adobe XD to start making your own websites and apps mockups. It sounds like a low-budget commercial but really these courses are great (my seventh one). I've created a lot, I've learned a lot. That's it. Hoping for Dan to receive best instructor on Udemy reward. He deserves it.

Course Overview

Hi there! My name is Dan & I’m an Adobe Certified Instructor. I’m here to help you learn Adobe XD efficiently and comprehensively. XD is a fantastic design tool used by industry professionals to product high quality & functional mockups. By the end of this course, you will be able to produce practical and effective User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) designs.

Throughout the course I’ll invite you to participate in a real-life freelance project which I’m working on. It’s a project that requires a fresh website and mobile app interface. This will prepare you for dealing with real world projects if you choose to move towards a UX/UI career path.

This course is aimed at people interested in UI/UX Design. We’ll start from the very beginning and work all the way through, step by step. If you already have some UI/UX Design experience but want to get up to speed using Adobe XD then this course is perfect for you too!

First, we will go over the differences between UX and UI Design. We will look at what our brief for this real-world project is, then we will learn about low-fidelity wireframes and how to make use of existing UI design kits.

I’ll go over all of the essential tools necessary for creating excellent wireframes, including: type, colours, icons, Lorem ipsum, artboards, prototyping, models and popups, symbols and repeat grids. We will even make use of the new prototyping app so that you can experience your prototype on your mobile device.

An important part of maximising your UX Design workflow is being able to utilise other software such as Photoshop and Illustrator. This is why I’ll be teaching you how to make use of both to help boost your XD productivity.

One of the awesome new features of XD is micro-interactions. I’ll be teaching you all about those and how to use them to grow icons and scenes. This is one of the parts of web design that’s growing and being adopted rapidly so you won’t want to miss out on learning it early.

There are two class projects for you to complete during this class, these will help develop your skills and will give you something for your own portfolio.

It is now time to upgrade yourself & learn Adobe XD.
