Join as on a journey to creating websites with out EVER touching the code… Enter Adobe Muse. A tool designed specifically for people who are used to the workflow of Adobe InDesign to embrace web design without the headaches of learning html or touching code.
User Group Member and Muse Beta Tester Adam Bucci will be taking us on a tour of the Adobe Muse workflow.
Adam will be showing us just how easy it is for even a novice to create a website in about an hour. YES.. PRINT DESIGNERS.. this means YOU!!!!
Work along with Adam as you create a simple four page website that will include a home page, a portfolio gallery, a contact page, and a blog page from the materials you'll be able to download during the session. So bring your laptop and make sure you sign up for the Adobe Muse demo and download the software prior to the meeting.
Â What is Adobe Muse?
AdobeÂ® Museâ¢ software enables designers to create HTML websites for desktop and mobile devices, without writing code. Design web-standard sites, like you design print layouts. Use familiar features, hundreds of web fonts, and built-in tools to add interactivity.Â Then, publish with the Adobe Business CatalystÂ® service and redeem site hosting support, or publish
with any hosting provider.
Adam will attempt to answer any questions after the main presentation.
Adam was born and raised in London, England. Rabid Arsenal FC Supporter. Worked at eight newspapers in the bay area in ad graphics, editorial design, marketing and promotions and pre-press. He learnt html by backward engineering established websites – and subsequently forgot html over the years. Adam has been using macs as a creative tool since 1986.Â He moved to Las Vegas in 2000, where he went to work as graphics editor at the Las Vegas Sun. During his time at the Sun, Adam replaced Quark Xpress with InDesign and got new G5s to replace the aging G5s.Â In 2005, he left The Sun and worked as senior designer at Greenspun Media Group, working primarily of one off special publications.Â After Greenspun, Adam became the Art Director for DAVID magazine, responsible for creating the look and feel of the publication, its website and all collateral.
Adam is currently a freelance designer,Â photographer andÂ art director of Golfing Nevada and Golfing Oregon Magazines.Â He isÂ also a certified jet engine mechanic.
Adam has been actively involved with Muse since 2010, when he was invited by Adobe to participate in the private beta testing. From that time, until its release, Adam has seen the program grow from a simple layout program to an almost ready for primetime website creation tool.Â
