Is Adobe Xd really better than Photoshop when it comes to web design?
The problem with designing websites in older design tools (like Photoshop or Illustrator) is that these tools don't have the features that UX/UI designers really need to help them designing websites. Like working with color pallets, font style guides and repeating elements or things like sharing your work via prototypes. These old software tools are also not vector, which can be an issue for development.
What is the solution?
Working with Adobe Xd! Because Adobe Xd was built with UI/UX designers in mind. This means that Adobe has done everything to make sure that you can design and share your work without limitations. The only thing you have to do is prepare a few things upfront and then re-use your elements on the whole website.
Learning how to design websites comes with huge opportunities. You will be able to design your own website (like I do in this course) or design websites for other people or businesses. This makes website creation a hugely profitable skill. Companies are willing to spend thousands of dollars for each website.
Step by step
In this course we are not going to rush and design a quick cool website without learning the basics first. There is enough of that on the internet. I am going to show you a real project where I'm going to start from scratch and slowly build up 4 pages in Adobe XD. This means that I will show you all the steps, from the first title to the last button.
Once we progress in the course (and you've seen the same techniques over and over) we will slowly start increasing the speed so you will also be able to speed up your skills by watching this course.

"I watch your videos and I get inspired every time because of your work/design." - Sam
"Your channel has inspired me to start designing myself." - Jordy
"I can't wait until the next video. I am following you for 4 years already and I've learned how to design this way :)" - Floor
I hope to see you inside of the course!
Hi, I'm Rino and I've been in design for over more than 10 years now. I started with design as a hobby, but I quickly realised that this was more than a hobby for me. So that's why I went to design school and studied: Communication and Multimedia Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam (The Netherlands).
I was so passionate about it that I started a YouTube channel about design in Dutch. This grew to a channel with more than 30.000 subscribers and 4 million total views.
Because of this YouTube channel I was approached by big influencers and brands, and I got the opportunity to start my own company and work for brands like: Coca Cola, ICI Paris XL, RTL and a lot of big influencers (with around 100k to 1m followers).
Because of these projects and the YouTube videos I've learned how to create in an efficient way, and most importantly: in real life scenario's. I create everything myself and I don't rely on templates, which gives me the freedom create whatever I want. If you like this approach, then I think you will like my courses.
Since 2019 I have also started a new YouTube channel in English, called: LivingWithPixels where I make videos for people that own (or want to own) their own web design business. This channel now already has over 50k followers and more than 2m views.
I hope you like my courses, and if you have any ideas for future courses, just send me a message!
