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

One of my favorite inspirational videos from Apple’s WWDC Keynote in 2013

What did you notice about it?
How did it make you feel?
What did they use for audio?
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.
