User Experience Design Essentials - Adobe XD UI UX Design

Are you excited to get into the world of UI/UX but you don't know where to start? This course will allow you to add UX designer to your CV & start getting paid for your new skills.

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.

  • Aria: "This course is definitely above expectations so far. I didn't expect to get so much insight into the briefing and the communication between UX Designer and a client. It helps to see the brief and to learn that there are different tiers of income based on projects and experience. Love It. "

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.

  • Kate: Excellent course - Dan is an excellent teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed following along with his videos. Highly recommend. July 2018: I have updated this review with an extra star because of how useful this course has been in the months following it's completion. I am using Adobe XD daily and Dan's instruction was instrumental to adding this feather to my front-end web development hat.

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.

  • Leigh: "I really enjoyed this course. I was a UX designer before the course and was looking for more information on XD and getting to know the program itself better, and this course really nailed it. It has great UX references and a few refreshing perspectives. As well as it really helps you learn XD in the process. The instructor is engaging and fun to listen to. Really really great course. I highly recommend to any new UX designers, as well as veterans looking for a refresh, or just to learn how to use XD."

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.

tips and tricks in 17 reviews

Dan covers off all areas and then some with some cool tips and tricks and recommendations to sites.

It add my knowledge using Adobe XD with a lot of tips and tricks also tools so I can work fastly.

Great, informative course that is easy to follow and full of extremely useful tips and tricks.

I'd say this was both a pro and a con, wishing that the end of the course would have provided more "advanced topics" and genuine ones at that, not tips and tricks that revolve around using just a tad bit more functionality than what is primarily presented.

Cheers from Argentina Instructor teaches us very helpful tips and tricks for XD!

Also learnt cool tips and tricks on other Adobe platforms I have been using for a while!

I got to learn a lot of tips and tricks through the fundamentals of the course which is pretty cool and I highly recommende it to others.

real world in 15 reviews

It also helps me learn how to think for myself instead of just following along and then, in the real world, I have to be constantly checking my notes.

There was great content, and I appreciate the series revolving around the creation of real world project.

I wasn't expecting exact real world example, but somewhat close to it.

2) include some real world projects.

as I said earlier not exact real world but somewhat close to it to get proper idea.

A good portfolio design will help me project myself in the real world.

​ Constant updates Goes to the point Teach with real world examples I find it quite perfect, is indeed helping me to learn and practice what i already know Hi Dan Thanks for this course!

graphic designer in 11 reviews

Hi Team, I am a graphic designer.

I am a graphic designer transitioning over into UX/UI design and this course is just what I need to help with that.

AS a university graduate as a graphic designer i can say Dan is a very knowledgeable guy and a serious professional.

This was a great course for me as a graphic designer looking to transition to a UX designer.

It teaches you to utilize XDs features in wide range and it helped me as a graphic designer to expand my skills to new territories.

But overall, I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to graphic designers who want to widen their range of expertise.

The best UI Design course available on udemy..."Dan the man";-) I'm doing this course as a way to upskill myself to further my career as purely being a Graphic Designer with a little bit of website experience, just is'nt cutting the mustard anymore.
