Introduction to Adobe XD

Duration: 1 Day


Adobe XD is the perfect tool to build the look and feel of an app or website, without any hard development slog - it bridges the gap between Photoshop/Illustrator for design and Animate/Dreamweaver for development. In this course you will learn to design an interface, create click-throughs to child pages, and output for client testing and wireframing. You will learn the full range of XD's tools for graphics, images, text, using multiple artboards to build clickable prototypes and workflow.


Basic IT competence. Some knowledge of Photoshop/Illustrator is useful but not essential

Course includes

A comprehensive set of reference notes covering course topics, follow-up telephone support and, for training on Transmedia premises, lunch and refreshments.
