I’m currently doing a website design project and just wanted to blog about my experience with prototypes.
I learnt that creating a model of a system is not just for evaluation and testing. It allowed me to refine my ideas and evaluate alternative designs. I used an iterative user-centred design process going
through subsequent design cycles which means I have to keep refining and developing prototypes of the system being designed. My prototype was low fidelity in form of wireframes no functionality but conveyed a sense of what the interaction would be like. I found the whole process fulfilling as it encouraged reflection in design.
