Description

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 this course is for:
  • Interaction designers
  • Graphic and visual designers
  • Programmers and developers
  • Startups
  • Product Managers

This is step 1 for everybody who is new to Axure. Let's get to know what's on the left side, bottom, right side, and in the toolbars. Before we can use Axure, we need to know where all of our key features live!

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.

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