- What are Prototypes Used for?
A prototype is also called a model or a mock-up Some of you may ask what are prototypes used for or what’s the function of prototypes? So far, prototypes are generally used in the following five ways First, for market interest During the market research phase, a mere photo or drawing is not enough to intrigue consumers Having protimer:November 18, 2015
- What Attention Should Designers Pay to get A Better Prototype?
When designing special parts like points and edges, as a strict designer, you might as well pay special attention for the sake of best prototyping results So what attention should designers pay to get a better prototype? Here are a few design tips to help you achieve that goal Minimum and Maximum SizeAs a rule, the typical minimum sizetimer:November 18, 2015
