Joint General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite User Group
Muse'ing with Mobile and More
Adobe Muse has had a couple of great updates since we last looked in on this creative-friendly web design tool. At this meeting Cynthia Gordon will lead a discussion about some of those updates and take a close look at several functions. Most exciting is the ability you now have to design alternate layouts for the desktop, tablet, and smart phone devices within Muse. Muse does much of the heavy lifting for you, so that you can focus on creating just the look and feel of the web site you want.
Because navigation is a foundation for any web site design, Cynthia will also be showing how easy it is to develop menus within Muse through the use of the Widget Gallery.
And, just for inspiration, we'll take a look at a few cool, Muse-designed websites, which are becoming more common as the creative community embraces this great application. Plus we'll see where to find some very helpful resources, so you can continue to explore Muse on your own.
OCMMA's Adobe Creative Suite User Group - Orange County (CS-OC) meets jointly with the General Meeting of OCMMA every third Tuesday of the month. Admission is free for OCMMA members, the price for non-members is $15, and $7 for students with ID. Come at 6 PM for networking and food and soft drinks.
