Rapid Prototyping with Launchpad for Sketch

December 22, 2017|
anima launchpad rapid prototyping

Have you ever thought how you can go straight from Sketch to published website? That is, cutting the middleman – developer. Yes, there is a way and that is by using Launchpad by Anima – a plugin for Sketch that comes free and also with a price. Maybe you are a startup that needs to cut cost but also able to quickly edit and publish your landing page. You don’t want to spend time looking on Upwork (or Fiverr if you’re thinking about it) and hire a designer or developer to edit the code as you need. An alternative I suggest is getting Sketch 48 and Launchpad to do the work. Now of course, it’s not all that easy as it sounds, but with some learning on Sketch and Launchpad I can assure that anyone can easily create their own simple website. You might need to learn about how Form…    read more

UI Prototyping With Prott

December 2, 2015|
Prott App

I have recently tried a new web app tool called Prott. It’s designed for rapid prototyping app ui designs for iOS and Android. Prott works similarly like InVision if you have tried, and comes with it’s own price tag depending on your projects. Here is a short video I have made that describes my experience prototyping with Prott: Click and dragging for action areas seems to be buggy, and I had a trouble sorting out the shapes. The layout was simple and clean, but I find not intuitive at times when looking for screens. You can view actions from your team in Activities, and this will show the changes that have been done. Another feature is you could create Wireframes as well. Prott has an editor that provides wireframe elements and tools to create your prototype generic antabuse australia. As for exporting, I find that it is fast and the…    read more

November 21, 2015|
Project Comet UI Design Software

When I was first starting out, I read how designers prefer Sketch and look at Photoshop as a ‘not complete’ tool. For me, I was learning Photoshop to get the basic fundamentals before I hop on to faster prototyping tools. What started for me, turn out to be something I truly stayed on until today. I simply like Adobe’s layout and look which get’s me in the flow when I’m designing. The good news to all Photoshop lovers is, they have released a UX/UI Prototyping software addition to the Adobe family! Dubbed as ‘Project Comet’, it is simply an all-in-one user interface design tool that encompasses Wireframing and Prototyping.

Pixate Guide: Learn Basic Animations

Pixate General View

Creating prototypes can be a very different approach for many of us. Some prefer the ease of Flinto, while others would go for Framer, which requires coding. There are many more, but I find Pixate to be somewhat a cross between Flinto and Framer, with the convenience of checking your prototype on a real device. And the best part, is it’s free and looks great! The first time I use Pixate, it was hard for me to understand the software. After going through the video tutorials on their site, then do I began to see their workflow methodology. To be clear, it is very much a programming style of workflow but in visual form. I like how it helps people like me who wants to gain that programming mindset, yet not be overwhelmed by it. Pixate truly tests your intuition and creativity, and the options are open to your ingenuity….    read more
