Prototype is an early sample of design used to get feedback and rapid experiments with new ideas. Our company is best in engineering design and provides the best Prototype design services in San Francisco CA.
Why are we Prototype ?
- Limit the expenses of development
- Test the design concepts
- Test the usability of the product
Prototypes typically created with a mixture of sketches, wireframes or mockups, prototypes depending on the project timelines and these are representations of the design.
This can be used as a mechanism to get user feedback early and quickly on your design where you can iterate on making your product a better one.
Sketching is a drawing which you could easily do with papers and pens with less cost. Mostly sketching is used in the early stages of the design process to get new ideas for the product as well as use to identify the users pain point.
Wireframes are representations of layouts and mostly focused on the layout of the content. Mostly use grayscale or black and white.
In low fidelity wireframing you can use tools to create grayscale wireframes which is a more richer way than sketching at the beginning of the design process.
Mockups is a fully created design including color details, typography, content etc… This will be more like the final product of yours. Here it does not represent the interactions.
Medium Fidelity Prototypes
This is a mixture of basic text and some UI elements. Mostly this is used when you have key elements in place but you need to validate to get a better understanding of user needs.
High Fidelity Prototypes
Use to validate the prototype when you have a finalized idea, UI and workflow.
If you carefully look at the above methods you will notice that sketches, wireframes and mockups single handedly are just designs, but to make it more functional we need to add interactions in our Prototype design services in San Francisco CA. This will give the user the exact idea of how UI’s change according to his/her actions.
