User experience professionals know that prototyping should be a key part of the design process. You generate design concepts. You test them. You discover what works and what needs improving. You find opportunities for new ideas.
But when it comes to prototyping tools and methods to use, many of us are unsure what to do.
There’s lots of tools to choose from. It’s often a mystery as to which one will work best for you and what’s best to use based on your situation. That’s where Todd Zaki Warfel comes in (cue the Superman music).
Todd is a thought leader in the user experience design world, as well as the author of the acclaimed book, Prototyping: A Practitioner’s Guide. Thanks to Todd and his publisher Rosenfeld Media, today’s UIETips article is a reprint of chapter 5, Picking the Right Tool, from his book.
In this article, Todd explores what tools people are using and what kinds of prototypes they make. I’m sure you’ll find this book excerpt of great interest.
