Our static designs are great, our prototypes are even better

Our Visual Design team excels at designing usable and gorgeous products. We fully understand the value prototypes can bring and we just so happen to *love* turning our designs into clickable prototypes.

Prototyping is the process of creating (and testing) a draft version of a digital product, whether it’s a mobile app, a web application or a marketing website. A prototype gives all stakeholders on a project super tangible handlebars to valide  ideas in an early stage without necessarily going all in on development just yet.

So what does a prototype look like? A great prototype should be able to represent, say, your mobile app or web app. Whether it’s a near perfect reflection of what the final design is going to look like including micro interactions, or a simpler, lower fidelity version. 

At Yummygum we know all ins and outs of our go-to Visual Design tools. On top of that we have systematic approach that allows us to turn static designs into clickable prototypes that are hard to tell apart from a fully developed app.

Some prototyping methods we use

Low fidelity prototyping

This type of prototyping works best if your goal is to test drive a higher level idea behind an interface. That’s because our UX Design can validate their research in the form of clickable wireframes. We reflect on layout decisions per screen and user flows as a whole.

Static prototype

A static prototype refers to creating a rather basic prototype that allows for top level navigating though static designs. It lets you and us both review designs for consistency and overall logic. This type of prototype makes a lot of sense for products that have just seen the light of day.

High fidelity prototypes

If you want to test drive our (final) designs of your web app or mobile app high fidelity prototypes . High fidelity prototypes allow you and your users to review designs that resemble the fully developed version of your app, all bells and whistles included. These type of prototypes make usability test results more true because of that.

Main takeaways

  • Prototyping helps validate ideas assumptions early on.

  • You don’t have to wait until you have a full fledges feature-ready product to start prototyping.

  • You can start prototyping with either lo-fi wireframes or high fidelity polished designs.
