It is said that you can’t design anything without first putting it in the hands of users, the people who will use what you have created.
Prototyping is about testing ideas out before you implement them. For years, designers have made mock ups of everything from hairdryers to fridges to see what they would look like off the paper.
Prototyping works on many levels from testing how a form works- can people fill it in- to ‘faking’ a whole process to see if people can use it. We now test end to end services and the mindset and methods around prototyping will give you the skills to test before you implement ideas.
