There's no better way to understand the relevance of Adobe Muse in the industrial workplace than by seeing how others use it.
The SnoValuation website, by North Carolina's 910Zen, was built using Adobe Muse. Tuts+ caught up with designer Robert Trait to ask him about his workflow and where Adobe Muse fits in with their projects.

Creative Cloud Add-ons mean getting a jumpstart on site designs with downloadable starter files, new widgets, and pre-designed elements—buttons and menus—directly from the Adobe Muse Library panel. Get started.
- Muse Themes: Mega Menu Dropdown Widget
- MuseGrid: Add Google Analytics Lite
- QooQee: Muse Templates
- Adobe Photography Portfolio
You can now develop HTML widgets that are not currently available in Adobe Muse, and easily share them with others in the community in the Adobe Add-ons online marketplace. As a developer you can learn how to get started creating these widgets (known as Mucows) on this documentation page. As a designer you can install these widgets just like you would install the .mulib files from above
Note: if the widget is distributed as a .mucow file, you’ll want to bring it into Adobe Muse via the File Menu > Place command.
That's a Wrap
Adobe Muse has undergone some dramatic changes recently; UI improvements and additional features. If you weren't using it before, perhaps now's the time to change that!
