Design leaders agree. Prototyping and user testing are at the heart of every successful product. Testing prototypes is not only the engine that propels truly user-centered design, but it also saves you time and money by preventing errors. It improves team collaboration at all levels and helps you sell your design ideas.

Requirements

Basic knowledge of Figma and After Effects is recommended.

 

Description

In this course, I will take you through the workflow, tools and techniques I have used while working in commercial projects for brands such as Vogue Magazine, Bulgari, Squarespace, Sony, Virgin and many others.


I’ll show you how I prototype almost everything, from early ideas to complex WebGL interactions.

And we won't only talk about user-testing. With a very practical approach, we will use tools like Figma, Principle or After Effects plug-ins to quickly create beautiful video-prototypes that will help you pitch design ideas, convince business leaders and seduce investors.

You will learn

  • Prototyping & User Testing Fundamentals
  • Prototyping tools
  • Prototyping Low Fidelity: Surveys, Card sorting, Paper Prototyping, etc
  • Prototyping Mid Fidelity: Clickable prototypes, Interactive prototypes, etc 
  • Prototyping Hi Fidelity: No code tools, Low-code platforms.
  • User testing your prototypes.

The course includes

  • 2 hours 22 mins of practical and condensed knowledge
  • Immediate access to the entire collection of videos
  • Valuable links and resources for every lesson
