Pro­to­typ­ing re­sources

Pro­to­typ­ing should be your best friend. It en­ables you to share the vi­sion of how users in­ter­act with your pro­ject in a very quick way with­out in­vest­ing any de­vel­op­ment time to build out. It also means stake­hold­ers can ex­plore a pro­ject and un­der­stand the flow be­tween pages or in­ter­ac­tion with el­e­ments.

In­Vi­sion­vi­sion­ In­Vi­sion is a go-to tool at Can­dorem. We’ve used it to sync up to our Drop­box pro­ject fold­ers to auto-up­date wire­frames and de­signs au­to­mat­i­cally, which saves a ton of time. You’re able to drop in static im­ages for desk­top, var­i­ous tablets or mo­bile de­vices and wrap the im­age in a de­vice frame to give the im­pres­sion it’s on a phone, for ex­am­ple. Cre­ate click­able hotspots that trig­ger over­lays, link to other screens, scroll to a new po­si­tion on the screen and an­i­mate be­tween each smoothly.

Adobe XD­ucts/xd.html Adobe XD has gar­nered a lot of at­ten­tion in the last year. Be­cause it’s part of the Adobe Cre­ative fam­ily, it’s a nat­u­ral ex­ten­sion to a ma­jor­ity of work­flows in the in­dus­try. You can de­sign high-fidelity pro­to­types or even full de­signs and add a layer of in­ter­ac­tion on top. Like In­Vi­sion, cre­at­ing click­able hotspots that trig­ger move­ment, in­ter­ac­tion or tran­si­tions to other pages in your pro­ject makes this a great re­source for shar­ing ex­pe­ri­ences with stake­hold­ers to get ap­proval.
