Been aMUSEd lately?

Well I have. I recently subscribed to Adobe’s Creative Cloud and it comes with many programs, some that I use on a daily basis and some I have never used. One of the programs that caught my attention was Muse. Muse is a program that allows designers to create websites without writing a single line of code! No more having to design a skeleton for a website and turning it over to a coder. Adobe has created a program that designers can simply drag and drop elements into an art board and is automatically coded when published.  How cool is that? Amused yet? Muse has allowed designers to take control of web design completely, and that is a big deal.

I haven’t created a site with it yet, but I’m planning to create my own portfolio site using this program. If you’re serious about designing, I would suggest getting Creative Cloud and keeping up with the latest programs. Not to mention, it’s only $19.99 a month for students.

Check it out here, and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Sounds great; I am looking forward to exploring it myself (I am getting the CC package for Christmas). I have to wonder though: we designers hate when companies create their own designs through ready-made templates. By using something like this, are we kind of doing that to the coders? I’ll still try it out though!

    I think Muse is cool, I have it as well, but there is something about coding that is just wonderful. To see that someone made an extraordinary website and took all the time to code it and got every detail right is amazing. I personally like coding. It is interesting and cool to see something you made with nonsense words come to life. I feel that Muse is helpful to an extent, but designers should at least get some experience with HTML and other languages.

    I’m currently taking Classical Mythology, Greek mythology basically, and it’s so weird how the term “Muse” is being twisted today.

    As awesome and easy as this all sounds it feels like something that could go horribly wrong. But it doesn’t feel too good to be true that people, like me, would put it on their wish list.

    These sights are great, as specially since hand coding can seem daunting at times. After some use though, their flaws can start to show through. As a designer you supposably know what to do and where things should go, or could go, and these programs can be very limiting, and thus very frustrating. On top of that, the sights created here often seem similar to each other.

    I took one web design class and then decided to minor in Web Design. I did learn how to code on HTML5 but it is so frustrating sometimes. I never knew this software makes life easy. I really should try it.
