This course focuses on features that are often used in web and app design projects. That means that basic features and knowledge like general file setup, placing images, layer basics, and adding text is something that ideally you’ll already have some experience with. If you don’t have much experience with InDesign, you should be able to follow along without any trouble.
- [Instructor] Before starting this course, UX Design Tools: InDesign, I just wanted to start out by mentioning that it will be very helpful if you have some InDesign knowledge already. In this course we'll focus on features that we all tend to use in web and app design projects with InDesign in mind, obviously. That means the basic features and knowledge like general file setup, placing images, layer basics, adding text, so much more, is something that ideally, you'll already have some experience with. If you don't have much experience with InDesign, I'm confident you'll be able to follow along without any trouble.
If you find you want more information on certain more basic topics as we go, you can also check out some of the following lynda.com courses available. There's an entire playlist on User Experience Design which is great. There's also a course called UX Design Techniques: Overview which is a great overview of UX Design. You can also then jump into InDesign CC Essential Training, the most recent version, creating HTML layouts with InDesign to get some tips and pointers for some of the things I'm about it show you, and then InDesign Interactive Documents and this will help you when you go to create your prototype.
