Since it’s inception Adobe Muse CC has been welcomed with open arms by wider graphic (print) design industry. Not only can you create websites without writing a single snippet of code, you can now do so in a vastly familiar (Adobe InDesign style) working environment. In addition Adobe Muse CC has functionality that supports mobile websites and the ability for you to upload to a free (Business Catalyst) or other hosting account.

This workshop is ideal for graphic designers alike who want to build a website without having to go through learning all the gruelling HTML/CSS code. It may also appeal to web designers who are interested in discovering what Adobe Muse has to offer as a non-coding alternative.

From there you will take a closer look at the features of Adobe Muse including the working environment, plan (sitemap), design and view modes, managing (master) pages, inserting content and images, creating dynamic menu systems, hyperlinking, forms, embedding maps/video and general formatting.
