Today we are unveiling a major milestone – responsive design is coming to Adobe Muse! The capabilities we’re introducing are completely free-form and make it easy for any designer to approach and conquer responsive web design. Best of all, you won’t get boxed-in with restrictive templates or write any code. If you’re not familiar with Muse yet, learn more and get started at adobe.com/muse.

The Muse team has observed a major trend in the design community’s growing discontentment with rigid responsive methodologies. We hear about how current approaches can ultimately limit creativity and expressiveness on the web. This difficulty motivates us to improve the solutions we provide designers:

Noah Stokes on Why web design is losing its soul
Andrew Clarke about Creativity Over Predictability
Owen Williams on how Web design is now completely boring

Responsive design in Muse is about giving designers the power to bring spontaneity and originality to web projects. We set out to create an experience where it would take only minutes to make a responsive concept come to life and understand how it looks on any sized screen. Our goal was to build a responsive design tool that feels as playful as it does powerful. We can hardly wait to see what you create with it.

But you don’t need to wait. If you’re interested in helping us test the new responsive capabilities, you can try the beta now. It’s available for Creative Cloud members on museprerelease.com. Since day one, our loyal community has helped shape Adobe Muse into what it is today and where it needs to go in the future. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks,
Brian Thomas
Muse Product Manager

    Really nice work, guys. Well done!

    Big day for Muse!!!!

  • By Macky Angeles - 8:44 AM on October 5, 2015  

    When will you release this??? Excited!!

  • By Albert Alonzo - 10:13 AM on October 5, 2015  

    WOW! So Excited… When is the release date? : ) I’m so Happy!

    Love the presentation at MAX. When can we expect the update (not beta)?

  • By Mike V - 1:06 PM on October 5, 2015  

    In the process of creating a responsive site, I would like to also have some better training videos on the use of the new responsive tools as well as BEST PRACTICES for sizing images, and objects to work best on all devices.

    For instance, How large should a slider be?
    What if I only want it to be 30% height, then what size should the image be?
    Same thing with text, Logos, Menus, etc…

    Another thing, how will this affect the new higher resolutions in phones vs tablets & Desktops? Clear teaching is needed as well. Sony has a new phone with 4K resolution, while Muse has been using 380px width for their phone layout and they even recommend the same breakpoint in the “Responsive Beta Muse” too.

    Just some clarification on these things and best practices and advice would be immensely helpful at these early stages.

    Oh My!
    that is great news.

    I am a web designer who loves Muse and i have been waiting for this news to come to pass for a really long time.

    Thank you Muse.

    I always thought this would never be possible. If you really get responsive design to work, the Muse developers team will be my personal super heroes forever 😀

    I downgraded from full CC version this summer into just a PS license due to lack of responsiveness in MUSE (Muse and Photoshop was the 2 programs that I mostly used).

    Any chance I could get a copy of the prerelease in order to decide if an upgrade to full CC license is worth the extra cost? 😉

    It’s great to hear this, I am waiting desperately to have this feature in Muse. This will make Muse present in every designer computer.

  • By Tullio Luongo - 2:15 AM on October 6, 2015  

    YEAH!

  • By Brian Thomas - 7:54 AM on October 6, 2015

    Thanks to all

  • By Clint - 3:07 AM on October 14, 2015  

    Exciting news! With new responsive design tools starting to pop up in greater numbers, this is exactly what this product needed. Muse is already an incredibly powerful app for designers, but this is going to take it to the next level. Great work, Muse Team! I can’t wait to try it!

  • By ZacharyZhao - 9:07 AM on October 14, 2015  

    This is just simply AWESOME! Can’t thank you guys enough for the amazing work you’ve done at Muse, really opened up a whole new possibilities for all of us designers. Keep up the good work, can’t wait for the official release!

  • By Daniel - 10:34 AM on October 14, 2015  

    Finally ……..Thank you so much Adobe

  • By Mark - 12:27 PM on October 14, 2015  

    Awesome, this makes the software much more attractive, it would be fairly foolish to approach s new web project without responsive capabilities.

  • By John Gaudette - 9:53 PM on October 14, 2015  

    When will the new version with libraries and responsive design be available for download?
    I have been checking every day since October 5

  • By Rene A. - 11:17 PM on October 15, 2015  

    A most welcome addition to Muse. I’m curious to see how it integrates with Business Catalyst, specifically for Blogging. I see BC as the only real way to integrate a blog in Muse. I hope the two programs play well together.
