Zebra Labs: Digital Best Practice Workshops

Advanced Axure prototyping for mobile

A prototype says more than all annotated wireframes combined

A picture says more than a 1000 words and when designing for mobile a prototype says more than all annotated wireframes combined.

It’s always better to see a mobile design in action than having to read about how it should work. Luckily UX designers these days have a myriad of tools at their fingertips to bring their designs to life without having to write a single line of code.

In this workshop we’ll be using Axure RP, which has quickly become the de-facto gold standard tool for interactive prototypes in the UX community.

Mobile-1

In order for us to get the most of the workshop you should have used the tool for wireframes showing user journeys though with little interactivity. This way we can focus more on the interactive elements that take a basic interactive wireframe to a fully fledged high fidelity mobile prototype.

We’ll keep the slides to a minimum and get you to have a crack at a simple sample app that we’ll build together during the course.

  • Very intense, content rich course. The information was layered well and presented in good bite size chunks. The group was the optimum size and there was an open feel to where attendees could interject and discuss problems and solutions. I would strongly recommend this course.

  • The day was great fun. I learnt a lot from Eva-Lotta and was inspired; it gives you the confidence to pick up a pen and illustrate a design concept rather than just discuss the concept. I now carry a sketch book with me and have started taking sketchnotes, which is actually a very useful way of focusing the mind onto the important parts of the meeting/discussion, rather than just making linear notes. Great course.
    – Julian Alders, Creative Director, Fidelity
