Video duration: 0s 1h 11m Intermediate


The UX Design Tools series connects early UX creative processes—like wireframing and prototyping—with the tools and techniques necessary to create a successful product design. Illustrator is one of those tools, noteworthy for its type tools, spacious artboard, libraries of reusable artwork, and clean vector lines. In this course, Justin Putney shows how to use symbols to take advantage of reusability, organize your artwork into layers, use artboards to design different wireframes for multiple screens and different application states, and export wireframes to share with clients and developers.

Topics include:
  • Creating and positioning guides
  • Building shapes
  • Designing reusable symbols
  • Creating character and paragraph styles
  • Adding text
  • Using artboards to organize and display content
  • Exporting to multipage PDF
