In today’s quick tip I’ll help you make your web designs and mockups as realistic as possible by getting rid of dummy content. Generic dummy text can be really helpful in giving a design “body”, but it often removes an element of context, ultimately making the design weaker. Let’s improve that!
Prototyping should be a fast and easy way to gain confidence in your designs. No longer regarded purely as a way to sprinkle motion magic or over-polish designs, prototyping is a communication tool. Whether communicating with stakeholders, design managers or users, a good prototype helps to communicate design decisions and test ideas.
Prototyping is a multi-disciplinary activity, spanning across digital design, industrial design and everything in between. Whilst being precursors to the end product, prototypes may vary in fidelity. This article will look at digital prototyping, providing guidelines you can use to determine when you should and shouldn’t build one.
Adobe XD is an all-in-one cross-platform tool for designing and prototyping websites and mobile apps, allowing you to get from your idea to working prototype faster. In our new short course, Prototyping an App With Adobe XD, you’ll learn the full process of wireframing, prototyping, and designing an app with Adobe XD.
Let’s take a look at some prototyping tools available for web designers today, in no particular order:
Adobe XD (also known as “Experience Design”) is fast becoming the web designer’s graphic tool of choice. It allows for designing, prototyping, and collaborating with others, all from within one application.
