Your job description might not say anything at all about making wireframes, interactive mockups, or prototypes, but having the ability to quickly create them can be invaluable, whether you're the de facto user experience team at your company, or a content strategist, or a technical writer. There's a wealth of new tools that make prototyping easier than ever—you don't have to be a Photoshop guru or know any software code! Pick up some new skills that can help you solve difficult concepts, communicate more efficiently, drive improvements to your products, or move your career in a new direction.
