About This Class

Is Adobe Xd really better than Photoshop when it comes to webdesign?

The problem
The problem with designing websites in older design tools (like Photoshop or Illustrator) is that these tools don't have the features that UX/UI designers really need to help them designing websites. Like working with color pallets, font style guides and repeating elements. Or things like sharing your work via prototypes. These old software tools are also not vector, which can be an issue for development. 

What is the solution?
Working with Adobe Xd! Because Adobe Xd was built with UI/UX designers in mind. This means that Adobe has done everything to make sure that you can design and share your work without limitations. The only thing you have to do is prepare a few things upfront and then re-use your elements on the whole website. 

What if I don't have any design elements?
In this course was build for people who only have Adobe Xd on their computer. I will give you my design files to practice and I will give you websites where you can get fonts, colors and images for free (for your next project).

The opportunity
Learning how to design websites comes with huge opportunities. You will be able to design your own website (like I do in this course) or design websites for other people or businesses. This makes website creation a hugely profitable skill. Companies are willing to spend thousands of dollars for each website.

Why is this course different?
Most Adobe Xd courses on this platform focus on App Design. This is cool and very fancy, but I like a more realistic approach. Because from my experience an UI/UX designer doesn't start his first interface design project for a cool startup. We start by designing websites for web and mobile. This is why I believe this course is very different from most of the courses about Adobe Xd. Again, app design is fancy, but I like to give you a skill that you can actually start using next week (because you probably already know a few people who need a redesign for their current website, don't you?).

I am not new to this game
I've gathered more than 30.000 subscribers on YouTube over the past few years and generated more than over 4 million views. I've been so thankful and happy that people like my content. That's why I'm also creating online video courses now.

Step by step
In this course we are not going to rush and design a quick cool website without learning the basics first. There is enough of that on the internet. I am going to show you a real project where I'm going to start from scratch and slowly built up 4 pages in Adobe XD. This means that I will show you all the steps, from the first title to the last button.

Once we progress in the course (and you've seen the same techniques over and over) we will slowly start increasing the speed so will also be able to speed up your skills by watching this course.

Watch out
I don't know how long I will keep this course live since I'm also working on my own course platform. 

Reviews from others
"I watch your videos and I get inspired every time because of your work/design." - Sam
"Your channel has inspired me to start designing myself." - Jordy
"I can't wait until the next video. I am following you for 4 years already and I've learned how to design this way :)" - Floor

I hope to see you inside of the course!
