Description

This course assumes you have taken or are already familiar with the content presented in my 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 around 75 minutes of video content. If you want to pause the videos and try what I'm saying, then it will take you more than 75 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.

Desktop Wireframes

Setting up your Axure workspace for desktop wireframes.

Preview 03:28

Loading and unloading libraries of pre-made widgets and icons. Great for placeholders!

Preview 03:05

Masters make your life easier by giving you a place to drop elements or whole sections that you might use over and over. Here, I build a master for our website header.

This example shows building a wireframe for a home page of a website.

Annotating Your Wireframes
2 Lectures 12:01

Axure has a way to add annotations, but it's not my preferred way since these only show up in the specification documents Axure generates.

Axure's Approach To Annotations
02:54

For wireframes, this is the best way to add annotations. It's rather manual, but you have complete control, and these will be seen when you publish.

Mobile Wireframes
2 Lectures 12:40

Let's imagine that our wireframes need to also show mobile responsive design. First, we set up our workspace for the mobile wireframing.

This example shows taking the home page wireframe we made for the desktop version and translating some of it for mobile.

Sharing Your Wireframes
4 Lectures 17:30

One common way to publish your wireframes is to create a PDF.

Create A PDF
07:01

You can also export Axure pages as BMPs, JPGs, PNGs, or GIFs.

Export Each Page As An Image
01:49

While this may be more useful for prototypes (rather than wireframes), you can publish your wireframes to HTML pages. Remember that the HTML, CSS, Javascript, and JQuery that Axure spits out should NOT be used as production code!

Publishing Locally
05:20

While publishing to Axure's Share site may make more sense for prototypes, you can certainly also do it with wireframes. Axure allows you to host up to 1000 Axure files with them for free! Sign up at http://share.axure.com.

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, I am one of just a handful of companies (worldwide) approved by Axure as a trainer.

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

Thanks, and go build something!
