Orange Co. MultiMedia Meetup:General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite- Orange County

  • Mar 19, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Digital Media Center

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.

Our meetings feature presentations by Adobe specialists, business entrepreneurs, camera and hardware pro's, and others. Topics include trends in multimedia, demos of Adobe Creative Suite applications, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and others, as well as discussions of best business practices for web technology and the digital arts. The goal of this group is to provide local designers and developers with a forum for learning from speakers and from each other about how best to leverage the power of Adobe applications in their business workflows. Cynthia Gordon is the Manager of CS-OC, and Virginia Houts is the Co-Manager.

    Thank you, Dolores, for your encouragement. Well done Cynthia, all the more so in showing your professionalism by compensating for Reflector app difficulties and the resultant time squeeze. You made it look easy!

    I'm glad that I can make some of the meetings virtually. It was really cool to see a much easier almost drag and drop web design application, especially after recently learning how to make a WordPress blog using a pre-designed template. If interested you can check out my simple first attempt at Great presentation Cynthia. Thanks Jeff for all your hard work in making the Adobe Connect a viable option for us.

    Thank you for your support and encouragement! I was happy to share what I've learned about Muse so far last night. As I said then, I believe this tool will continue to grow in capabilities and popularity within the web design community. Thanks to both our in person and online attendees!

    Sometimes I get too comfortable with my area of interests which are with editing and visual effects, and not wanting to delve into other areas of multimedia. I came anyway figuring maybe I'd learn something.
    I was surprised and delighted first by the simplicity & logic that muse incorporates into it's application for webpage design.
    Secondly, the way that Cynthia presented the topic, was so great for me.
    Many times a presenter, in their intention to teach us as much as possible, go at such a fast pace, it's impossible to write notes, missing important steps. Cynthia presented at a good pace in a logical order, not too fast or too slow. I realized what a great teacher she is and I came away with thinking that "Hey-I could do this!" Thank You Cynthia!

    When I first heard of Adobe's Muse, it sounded like a toy that wouldn't be taken seriously. What Cynthia showed tonight has proved me wrong. It is a powerful tool today and will be even better as time goes on. Great meeting Cynthia!
