Before watching this course on Adobe XD you'll need a basic understanding of graphic file types and sharing online.
- [Instructor] Now there are some basic things that you need to know before watching this course, and quite frankly, you should know that this is designing a website using Adobe XD. So you're just designing the site. You're actually not building a fully functional site, okay. In Essence, what you'd use there is something maybe like Adobe Muse for instance or even Dreamweaver in creating a fully functional site. So this is designing sort of at an enterprise level website with interactions, there is functionality there, but in essence, it's for designing and then prototyping as well, so that basic functionality.
And then from there, what you should know is just basic file types. You should be familiar with JPEG, PNG, GIF, these SVG files, text files, all pretty straightforward, and you should know sort of fundamentally how the web works.
This course shows everything you need to know to design your first website with Adobe's new prototyping app. Learn how to lay out a design, import graphics, and add headers and body copy. See how to create complex screen designs with repeating lists and grids that are as easy to change as they are to create. Then find out how to add new pages and use screen elements from the iOS, Android, and Windows UI kits that are built right into Adobe XD. Once the design is done, author Paul Trani shows how to add interactions and transitions to demonstrate how the website will "work" from one screen to the next. Plus, learn how to share a fully interactive prototype with other designers and clients, and export artboards and other assets to use in site development.
