As an Asian saying goes, it is better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times. When somebody describes you some concept you can try to imagine each tiny detail, every piece of the whole, each brick in the wall, but there is always a thing that somehow slips your mind.
Thus, if you want to help others feel and enjoy your wit, you need to visualize your idea, make it, let’s say, tangible. You can do it in many ways: draw a picture, create a video, and prepare a diagram. Or, you can create a prototype through which people can click and see how the would-be design will work.
Among numerous tools that may be of use when preparing such a prototype, you can try InVision – a decent platform with the help of which you can:
- Mimic UI flow
Make presentation of your ideas a breeze as this feature allows you to show how the story that you want to render logically unwinds. It is a huge benefit comparing to sending numerous screenshots.
I have set up a small prototype based on the opening of the new letter in Gmail to show how prototyping in InVision works. If you are not sure what to do, click on the mobile screen. The system will give you a hint.
- Get feedback
Discuss your ideas using an interactive structure with the help of which you can easily leave and receive feedback. Just set a point on the part of the screen and leave a comment there. One comment is already added. Feel free to try it and add more.
- Show interaction
Ensure that your prototype looks even more realistic by mocking-up:
To sum up, I would like to say that described above features are only a small part of what InVision can offer you. Being a powerful prototyping tool, it can help you put your idea across and let others enjoy your creativity.
Still, remember – it is you who is a blacksmith of ideas and InVison is only a tool in your hands.
