Designing & Prototyping: Turning Ideas Into Reality at @PANMA Deck

Here’s the presentation deck from the November PANMA event in Philadelphia.

Whether you are creating a new project, developing a app or launching a new website, join us to learn about the latest strategies in brainstorming and prototyping. During this session we will highlight specific tools, techniques and workflows to help you kick-off any project the right way. Learn how to communicate a concept, beginning with low-fidelity prototypes, gather user feedback and translate into high-fidelity prototypes BEFORE you start development. So bring your pens, crayons, markers and paper to get your ideas out of your head and make them a reality!

What you’ll learn:

  • How to get started, the tools, techniques and applying prototyping to your process
  • Techniques for paper, web and app based prototyping
  • New web based apps to accelerate the process
  • Collect feedback, review and prioritize next steps
  • Mobile based apps and tools for quick prototyping
  • Dozens of resources and tools to get started

What about the graphics?

Lots to think about and get inspired by…

This one is from 2014 WWDC called Perspective, interesting effect and message.

Development Tools

Form – Mac App for iOS Prototyping – Free from Google

Form is a new approach to interaction design and prototyping. Form lets you build custom prototypes directly on the device. Form prototypes are native and they have access to the device’s camera and other sensors. Prototypes built with Form are as powerful as their coded counterparts.
