About the course


Our Advanced course is an intensely practical session suitable for those who have either completed our Intermediate course or are already capable of the following:

  • Can format widgets to produce colourful buttons, rollover states, embed links, styled containers and so on
  • Use guides and grids to create tidy prototypes
  • Can screen grab then chop up existing web pages and put them back together in a different order
  • Can create interactive HTML prototypes with interaction that feature conditional logic such as:
  1. If dropdown = ‘shoes’, show some shoes
  2. If dropdown = ‘hats’, show some hats
  3. Clicking object X changes object Y
  4. If Z does not contain @ show error message
  • Understands the fundamental principles of ‘dynamic panels’:
  1. Making stuff appear and disappear on click or mouse over
  2. Simulate HTML5 type wizardry such as carousels, lightboxes, in page changes etc
  • Can annotate prototypes
  • Can use masters to create reusable elements such as global navigation

What will you learn?

  • How to make prototypes that are essentially indistinguishable from real websites
  • Advanced dynamic panel use, to create HTML5-type wizardry such as:
  1. Animations
  2. Carousels
  3. Accordions
  4. Page scrolling
  • Advanced conditional logic:
  1. If X = a AND Y = b THEN do this thing ELSE do something else
  2. Local variables
  3. Math and string functions
  • Variable passing between pages (one widget or page knows what happened on another widget or page)
  • Embed media such as video and maps
  • How to use frames to draw in content from live sites
  • Mobile prototype generation (how to design for small screens and view on a mobile device)
  • How to get the best from high-fidelity prototype testing

It's fun, it's interactive, you will meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with, you will produce something worthwhile and go back to your desk armed with weapons to impress your colleagues and friends.


After completing the training, participants will be able to:

  • Become an Axure Ninja!
  • Make sophisticated prototypes that are essentially indistinguishable from real functionality
  • Build, distribute and user test sophisticated interaction design in Axure without the need for developers

  • Lunch
  • Hot & cold refreshments
  • Fresh fruit
  • Snacks
  • Course materials
  • Certificate of completion


About the trainer

Aaron Young - Principle Consultant

Aaron has a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Human Centred Computer Systems and is Head of Usability at Bunnyfoot. After several years working in severe mental health services, Aaron went back to university to study the relationship between human cognition and digital interfaces. After discovering that malfunctioning interfaces can be as difficult to change as human cognition, he avowed to remedy the situation by ensuring things are usable BEFORE delivery to the end user.

He has been with Bunnyfoot for 7 years and is a highly experienced, and profoundly user-centred, interaction designer and usability consultant. He has hundreds of hours of user testing sessions for clients in (nearly) every conceivable domain including several companies within the Virgin group, The Judiciary, National and Local Government, Easyjet, BBC, ITV, Microsoft, The NHS and more…

He has vast experience in the development and design of websites and mobile apps from requirements gathering, early concept development, information architecture, wire-framing and rapid prototyping.

Aaron is Bunnyfoot's resident Axure Fu master.
