Learn Adobe XD and Export A Logo in 1 Day

+ In developing a personal brand, I wanted a logo and already had a design in mind, but I'm not a graphic designer. Nevertheless, I still wanted to try and embarked with the following requirements:
  • Find an easy-to-use app and a simple tutorial to learn the basics.
  • Digitize and export different versions of logo.
  • Do all the above in a 1-day project.
+ Luckily, app developers know I exist, and I was pleased to find the free application Adobe XD.
+ Within an hour, I was up to speed on all the functionality I'd need to use Adobe XD after taking this free course on Udemy (How to Design & Prototype in Adobe XD). The draw tools make sense and are responsive, and exporting is a breeze. Adobe XD not only handles drawing, it excels with designing and prototyping a website [insert link to Design First, Code Second post].

+ All in all, if you're a beginner and looking for an entry-level way to start creating without a lot of investment, Adobe XD is a great tool to turn your 'what if's into reality.
