How do you go from a brilliant idea to a product on the market? First, you fake it. Bring your concept to life quickly and cheaply.
Rapid prototyping is the perfect way to design and pitch your app. This workshop presents a range of realworld prototypes, created for startups and major brands, covering a variety of different methods.
The workshop provides hands-on lessons for building rapid prototypes. Whether your product will be built in HTML, Xcode or any other technology, you’ll learn how to quickly create convincing prototypes using Flash (no experience in Flash necessary).
Flash prototyping is a very simple yet extremely powerful technique that combines the best of paper prototyping, wireframes and HTML prototyping. The method you'll learn dramatically increases the speed and agility of the design and development cycle, while decreasing documentation to almost zero.
