16 Prototyping Tools & How Each Can Be Used

Prototyping is an intimate part of the Design Thinking process. It’s the necessary part of the design process where we get the chance to prove out our crazy ideas. And when the prototype is finished, we test it. We validate and challenge our assumptions. We adjust our designs when new information arises. But how do we know which tool to use? How far should we go with the prototype? Here are 4 questions you should be asking whenever you approach a prototype:

  1. Are you building for mobile, tablet, or desktop?
  2. How high fidelity does your prototype need to be?
  3. How fast do you need to go?
  4. How much of the experience do you need to show?
