Wireframing and Rapid Prototype Development using Balsamiq and Axure
How we use wireframe mockups and rapid prototypes to design apps
We build early app prototypes using wireframing during our overall app design process. Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, a good wireframe is worth a thousand words in a specification document.
Wireframes function as blueprints for the behavior of the app, and provide the app or product design requirement documents. Wireframing can save a tremendous amount of time and money in the overall app development process.
The Benefits of Wireframes and Mockups
|Visually clear with interactivity||Visually poor, one-dimensional|
|Easy to experiment and change||Slow to iterate and change|
|Fast client feedback||Cumbersome client feedback|
|Experiencing the app’s navigation||Reading about the app’s navigation|
An sample of an interactive, 80% completed wireframe
Used in the design of the FilmOneFest app, we shared a series of wireframes with the client as interactive PDFs.
