Less Wireframing. More Prototyping.

I’ve done both and totally agree that Prototyping wins over Wireframing. I use Keynote for former and Fireworks for latter. However, Prototyping consumes more time thus needs more budget, which is worth it.

Leisa Reichelt lists 11 points why prototyping beats wireframing. Here are top 3:

  1. You’re making, not documenting. You can feel the thing you’re making.
  2. You’ve got a thing you can start testing, in all kinds of ways, almost immediately. Prototyping is more like experimenting than describing your grand design.
  3. Prototypes create the impression of real progress—of something actually happening—in a way that wire framing never does.

    This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
