Import snapshots of mockups
Add interactivity by linking screens
Share prototype for getting user feedback
A Powerful Skill at your Fingertips
Learning the fundamentals of rapid paper prototyping puts powerful and useful skill at your fingertips. Paper prototyping is easy to learn and is the base for all lean product design and development.
Rapid Paper Prototyping is the process of quickly mocking-up early draft versions of a product. A good prototype keeps the complexity out! Build the most important elements into your project, and receive feedback early on.
With paper prototypes, you can present an initial product idea, kick-off product brainstorming or discovery session, get some initial user feedback.
