Class Introduction

My name is Brian Wood and I just wanted to give you a little background on who I am, the person that's gonna be talking to you for the next 90 minutes or so. I am actually a developer and a bit of a designer. I'd like to at least think I am. I've written 15 plus books, and I've written the Adobe Muse CC Classroom in a Book, a second edition. And I get to do all kinds of things in my day to day, if you will, my job, which includes creating content, doing this kind of thing, building websites. Just about everything, I love doing it all. This is actually the book that I wrote, and it's been out for a little while now, and if you get a chance, take a look at it. I think it's pretty good. What we're gonna do today is we're gonna actually show you a jumpstart into Adobe Muse. Now this is actually meant to touch on the major features of the program. We're not gonna dive in into every single feature, and if you want to see that type of thing, you want to see a deeper dive, you can go into my M...

use Fundamentals course. You will see a responsive website being built and we'll introduce what's called responsive web design as well. Which is pretty crazy that Adobe Muse can do that, I love it. So who's this class for? This is for anybody that wants to take a look at Adobe Muse, get an idea, learn it. Marketers, print designers, web/UI design, that type of thing. It's for the beginner so we're gonna take, like I said, an overview or a broad look at Adobe Muse just to give you an idea of what it can do. We're gonna cover creating a site. We're gonna add some pages, we're gonna configure a few things. We're gonna add a master page or least work with a master page. We're gonna talk about responsive web design a little bit. We're not gonna get too crazy with it, that's what the fundamentals course is for. And then we'll jump into images and text. We're gonna talk about widgets and adding widgets. Widgets are probably gonna be by and far one of your favorite things 'cause they do the cool stuff. We're gonna add links and a contact form. And then finally we're gonna wrap things up, test it out, and publish it. You'll see that we can do that pretty easily. So what can you do with Adobe Muse? I guess that's a question I get a lot and I just wanted to show you this website. This is the Adobe Muse site of the day. And if you go out there, you can see for yourself exactly the types of sites that you can create using Adobe Muse. I think you'll be impressed. There's a lot of great stuff in there.

Adobe Muse CC 2018

Tasked with creating a website for a friend's start-up, I looked at various template driven tools in the market and also signed up for this Creative Live class. My experience with CL classes is wonderful and this Quick Start class for Adobe Muse CC did not disappoint. Brian Wood is very knowledgeable. His pace is fast, and the content he presents is awesome. He de-mystified Muse for me (I am generally a Photoshop/Lightroom users). After the class I was able to start packaging the information story-boarded for the website content so I can confidently design the first draft. I also bought the course so I can revisit some of the tips and tricks. Recommend this course.

I've always been curious to see what Muse had to offer but didn't know where to even start. This was a great intro to take you through the steps you would take to design and publish a site. Brian does a great job in explaining stuff which you can easily follow if you have the program open!

I didn't know Adobe Muse was easy! Thanks Brian, can't wait to watch the rest of the videos in this series.
