Creating Interactive Prototypes
Creating interactive prototypes is an important step in the product design process. Use this checklist to make sure you cover the basics of creating them!
Create the screens
These screens don't have to be high-fidelity designs.
Wire them up
Make sure you have linked every screen to each other so that ther are no gaps in interactions.
Pay attention to component behaviours
For better prototyping you should pay extra attention to component states and their behaviours. E.g. sticky components, hover and active effects, micro-interactions...
Test the usability of the product
E.g. Make sure the buttons are easily noticable and clickable. Texts are easy to read, etc.
Create user personas
Create user personas compatible to the project's targets.
Test the design as a user
Get on to the shoes of the personas you have created and use the product as if you were the user.
