Adobe Releases Muse, Web Design Tool Aimed at Graphic Designers

  1. 1.  Adobe Releases Muse, Web Design Tool Aimed at GraphicDesignershttp://tier10lab.com/2011/08/19/adobe-releases-muse-web-design-tool-aimed-at-graphic-designers/August 19, 2011By Molly TrohaAdobe has released a public beta of their new website creation platform, Muse. Through its 2012 release,Muse will be available for free; the subscription will cost $15-$20 per month thereafter. Designed withgraphic designers in mind, it will serve as a great tool for people familiar with Adobes design programsbut not as well-versed with HTML coding. Danielle Beaumont from Adobe explains, "Muse was built withthe print designer in mind. It allows designers who are not coders to create unique, professional websitesas easily as producing a layout in InDesign….It allows the designer to do things that only a hand-codercould do." In theory, the designer does not have to know any code. After the website is created, Museautomatically creates the corresponding code and the end-user then has several options in terms ofimplementing that code and publishing their site.Once inside Muse, tools are similar to the other Adobe programs, and have a layout that mimics acombination of Fireworks, Photoshop and InDesign. Tier10 Marketing Graphic Designer Mike Bell says,"This is a godsend for those who specialize only on design. For a lot of us, most of the focus was on printdesign in school, so Muse will save a lot of time because well no longer be trying to learn coding." Musealso has a library of pre-coded widgets that can be dropped into the website design at any point. It allowsthe designer to add slideshows, lightboxes, navigation menus, accordion panels and more. And for thosewho may be familiar with code, these widgets can be easily customized. Muse also has the option to dropin HTML embedding, like code for social plugins and widgets.Muse does simplify the web design process, but not completely -- the ideal user should have someworking knowledge of web creation. Bell says, "It may still be necessary to understand some aspects ofcoding and the back-end of web design."http://www.Tier10Lab.comhttp://www.twitter.com/Tier10Labhttp://www.facebook.com/Tier10Marketinghttp://www.Tier10Marketing.com
