Interface Design Process for FileMaker Pro - Part 2

Plan and organize the structure of your design for a solid foundation

Planning your design is very important. At the beginning of the design process, you are establishing the structure upon which the finished design will be built, and the decisions you make at this stage will be key. In Part 2 of this 4-part course you’ll learn how a layout is organized, and how to create a strong basic structure that can be adapted to your whole solution.

This FileMaker Interface Design course will provide you with a logical set of steps that will bring clarity to your UI design process and help you create a product you can present with confidence and pride.

Whether you’re designing from scratch, or redesigning an existing application, the design concepts and decisions you will learn about will help you develop more efficiently and effectively.
