Ever wonder why some projects just feel ‘right’ and others don’t? Or maybe you might have the Next Big Thing, but aren’t sure if it is going to work? There is an answer to those issues, Build a Prototype!

This presentation will introduce you to the types of prototypes (paper to high fidelity), their benefits and how various Adobe tools can be used to create them. By leveraging prototypes, your team will be able better communication their ideas and avoid costly mistakes.

We don’t have the budget.”I’ll cover more of this when I talk about prototyping’s role in testing, but you can uncover potential mistakes, gaps in the application flow, or points of uncertainty.Disneyland and the new Cars Ride1st builder testOvercoming “designer perfection” – Item labels all just fit, elements don’t scroll.

    • 4. What is Prototyping
      …incomplete versions of the software program being developed. A prototype typically implements only a small subset of the features of the eventual program, and the implementation may be completely different from that of the eventual product.
