So…Why Prototype?

How Prototyping has become multidisciplinary

Prototyping process and experiences

  • Desktop Walkthrough — A simulation of the end-to-end experience at a small scale;
  • Investigative Rehearsal — A 1:1 scale prototype inspired in the theater to inform the emotional side of an experience through full-body role-play.

Prototyping physical products

  • 3D prototyping — a 3-dimensional representation of any object. Depending on the level of fidelity needed, you can start with a cardboard prototype all the way to 3D printing.

Prototyping digital products

  • Paper prototyping — A perfect and quick prototype for non-designers where you hand sketch the screen of a digital interface;
  • Wireframes — As you progress and need to add more fidelity to your prototype you can use this method to create a non-graphical. representation of the interface for your team and test user interaction.

Prototyping Business value

Define the purpose

To explore

To evaluate

To communicate

Define your prototyping questions

  • Start with value — How does this product/service create value?
  • Look & feel — What does it look and feel like?
  • Feasibility — How do you make it work?
  • Integration — How does it all work together?

Define how refined your prototype needs to be
