  1. Prototyping User Experience

    January 7, 2019

    A prototype is a primitive representation or version of a product that a design team or front-end-development team typically creates during the design process. The goal of a prototype is to test the flow of a design solution and gather feedback on it—from both internal and external parties—before constructing the final product. The state of a prototype is fluid as the team revises the design iteratively based on user feedback.

    Why Are Prototypes Important?

    September 9, 2019

    Wireframing and prototyping are two of the most important stages of the design process. Wireframes and prototypes enable you to present your design concepts and show a Web site’s or application’s basic functionality to your stakeholders and clients. It is important that your clients understand the significance of creating wireframes and prototypes for their overall project and the differences between these deliverables.

    At one of my previous organizations, our design team was redesigning an ecommerce Web site. During a daily standup meeting, our client suggested that we skip the prototyping stage and, instead, start with front-end development, creating interactive screens with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Angular JS.
