Sample clip

 

  • Muse is great for portfolio sites, micro-sites, landing pages, and simple or small business websites.
  • Muse is ideal for graphic designers who are creative, not keen on coding, who would prefer to create something unique instead of amending templates, and who are good at Photoshop, Illustrator and Animate (knowledge of InDesign is also beneficial).
  • Responsive design used to be a separate application called Adobe Reflow, which got merged into Muse in 2017. This made this product even more robust and an excellent tool for web design.
  • Parallax scrolling effects can be incorporated into your Muse projects, as well as static & fluid breakpoints.
  • Muse has full support for web fonts, so make sure you use them in your projects. Avoid adding text in image format, always keep your text written to improve the SEO of your site.
  •  Muse allows you to implement a visually designed, yet truly responsive website. Elements that you add to your pages can be optimized for everything from a very large, high resolution desktop browser, down to the smallest, low bandwidth mobile device.
  • There are no pre-made themes in Muse. Instead you design your website from scratch. Fortunately Muse has built in some solid support for design. For example you can make lots of customizations to blocks: set opacity, blur, border radius, border sizes, add drop-shadows, scroll effects and more etc.
  • Your job is to visually design the site using a freeform design canvas. From there, Muse figures out how to generate modern html, CSS and JavaScript code to assure that the design will be as consistent as possible across all of those browsers and devices.
