Designing a Portfolio Website with Adobe Muse - Lynda.com

View the complete course online at Lynda.com

Back in June 2012, Lynda.com approached me (Steve Harris) to develop a course for their training library that explained how to design and build a creative portfolio site in Adobe Muse.  The course touches on the fundamentals of working with Muse, however it's intended for users who have a good base knowledge of the software and are looking to take their sites to a higher level.  For a great introduction to Muse, I would recommend "Muse Essential Training" by Adobe Certified Expert James Fritz.

I've included a variety of my favorite tips and tricks in the training - everything from repeating backgrounds, layering images to create depth and even installing Google Analytics.  I worked with nearly every widget available in the Muse widget library, and left nothing standard.  Every piece of the site is custom built and tailored to my liking. There are slideshows, contact forms (BC & Wufoo!), compositions, tabbed panels, and many more!
A unique aspect of this particular training is that I didn't limit it to only working with Muse. Everything from Photoshop, Illustrator, and even InDesign is used to build / integrate graphics. We went beyond the basics of building just the site, and outlined how you purchase domain names and link them to a Business Catalyst Muse site.
And all of this without writing any code.
This training is the complete package for visually creating a custom website in Adobe Muse - check out the sample videos below!  Enjoy.
