In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a hotel booking app design in Adobe XD. Being Adobe XD we’ll be able to build much more than just a static design; we’ll be building an interactive, animated prototype.

To begin with we’ll walk through some common components of any hotel booking UI design. So what will we be covering?

• Using basic shapes, paths, and vector shape building techniques, you will learn how to create line icons and buttons.
• Using transitions and animations, you will learn how to turn your final design into an interactive prototype.
• Finally, you’ll learn how to add stock images to this hotel management Android project.

For more inspiration on how to adjust or improve your final hotel booking app design, you can find plenty of resources at GraphicRiver.
