Levin Me­jia counts down the top pro­to­typ­ing tools you should be try­ing out in the com­ing year

Pro­to­typ­ing tools can help us solve de­sign prob­lems be­fore writ­ing even a sin­gle line of code. Pro­to­types bring our ideas to life, and in do­ing so can change the way we de­sign. To­day’s clients want to see in­ter­ac­tive pro­to­types; th­ese show the con­cepts in ac­tion and help them see how their ideas will take shape.

The pos­si­bil­ity of quickly shar­ing dif­fer­ent it­er­a­tions of ideas with clients can ac­cel­er­ate the de­sign process. This flex­i­bil­ity be­comes even more sig­nif­i­cant when we con­sider the many de­vice for­mats we must now fac­tor in.

With so many pro­to­typ­ing tools now avail­able, per­haps many de­sign­ers are left won­der­ing how to choose the best one, and sim­ply fall back on fa­mil­iar meth­ods. Ul­ti­mately, the goal is to pick up a tool that will sup­port swift it­er­a­tions, so you want to be sure to se­lect one that does this with ease and lets you fo­cus on what you do best: de­sign.

To help with this se­lec­tion, I’ve com­piled the best of the best: here are the top 10 pro­to­typ­ing tools you should be us­ing in 2016!
