Welcome to the Beginners course! If you want to go further with Axure training, contact me for personalised, private training. You can also visit my Ptype website for a link to my newest 9+ hour video course on learning Axure (not available on Udemy).

This course has nearly 60 minutes of video content. If you want to pause the videos and try what I'm saying, then it will take you more than 60 minutes to go through.

Through my consulting company, Ptype (formerly known as Brass Flowers), I am one of just a handful of companies (worldwide) approved by Axure as a trainer.

What Is Axure?

Axure is software available for Windows and Macs that allows people who work in UX (user experience), interaction design, development, design, or product management to create flow charts, wireframes, and interactive clickable prototypes. Axure's main competitors are Omnigraffle and Visio for wireframing and JustInMind for prototyping.

Axure easily handles low, medium, and high fidelity wireframes and prototypes. It can also handle data sets, variables, listeners, mobile interactions, and a seemingly endless heap of great features. Clickable interactive prototypes that work on desktop and/or mobile are great for socialising, user testing, and documentation.

Axure can publish HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Jquery (not for production servers, please!) and can also generate a variety of spec documents. Published Axure files can be uploaded to your own hosting or straight through the software to the Axure Share site. Axure now lets you host up to 1000 prototypes for free (password protection on each is optional).

Whether you need to show a quick mockup or reproduce a polished product, Axure is a great tool to know well. Many UX employers are starting to look for Axure on resumes! With a great coach (that's me!) and some Axure training, you can expand your skill set.

Who is the target audience?
  • Interaction designers
  • Graphic and visual designers

Quite possibly my favourite lesson! Axure's flexible styles let you define, save, and duplicate styles for widgets and text. Styles are global, so they're great to use for styling text as well as buttons and coloured backgrounds.

Defining Widget and Text Styles

Aligning images, shapes, and text. Using images that are on your hard drive. Creating shapes from Axure's library of shapes. Using placeholders and showing an example of a placeholder with a caption.

Working With Images, Shapes, and Text

Creating masters, organising them in folders, placing them anywhere or in fixed locations. My examples are a website header and a placeholder icon.

Interaction Designer, UX Consultant, and Product Designer

Hi! I'm Debbie. My UX world started in college in the early 90s. Outside of my major, I studied Psychology, Psychology of Music, and Psychology of Language. When I started my own website design company in 1995, I wanted us to build websites based on how people naturally think, act, and move around interfaces.

It was UX before it was UX!

My website company is still alive, but my main world is Ptype (formerly known as Brass Flowers), my consulting company. I do UX consulting and interaction design for startups and companies of all sizes. I've also had contract jobs at agencies, Wells Fargo, and Sony doing desktop and mobile interaction design.

I've been using Axure nearly daily since early 2011. I do local and remote live training on Axure at all levels and for all kinds of audiences and roles. But since I'm so often asked for the same lessons, I decided to make a set of video classes.

Through my consulting company, Ptype, we are one of just a handful of companies (worldwide) recommended by Axure as a trainer. 

If you need more personalised instruction, please contact me for a training proposal.

Thanks, and go build something!
