Adobe XD is one of the highest-ranking tools in our group's "what would you like to learn?" survey. You've clearly indicated that it's either (a) very mysterious and you want to get your feet wet, or (b) an incredible tool that can help you with your daily work, and you need to learn some tips and tricks. Adobe says, "Adobe XD is the all-in-one UX/UI solution for designing websites, mobile apps, and more."

Wherever you fall on the spectrum, we've got you covered this month with a virtual live presentation by Julie Masalska, who's based in Denver. CO. Julia is a designer and educator, known for her entrepreneurial spirit and her willingness to share her knowledge in branding, packaging and the use of Adobe tools. Since 2018, she has been a guest and host on Adobe Live (www.be.net/live) working across the Adobe programs. In 2020 she became an XD instructor and is now bringing XD closer to the world. Besides her work with Adobe, Julia is hosting her own educational YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmuWU8GEBoRNun7hse03u1w?view_as=subscriber) and building an international design community on her Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/justanothersunnygirl/). Julia is passionate about helping people transition careers and bringing them closer to design. She's graciously agreed to present to our group and we're so lucky to have her in the driver's seat for our May meeting!

Julia will help you get oriented as a beginner, or advance your skills if you're already working with XD. We'll talk about similarities between some of the tools in XD and their counterparts in InDesign and Illustrator. This is a live course, driven by your feedback -- we'll have some early polling questions in the Zoom meeting to determine everyone's appetite for different topics and she will teach based on those answers.

Our thanks to Paul Bunyar for connecting us with Julia! Our Zoom room can handle 100 people, so invite your friends!
