(2012). Sketching User Experiences. Waltham, MA: Elsevier, Inc.Why Prototype?Test application flow, navigation, interactions, micro-interactions, animations, transitions, etc.Make it easier for the users to imagine what the final product will look like.Participants gave extremely detailed and invaluable feedback that allowed me to craft the experience to their benefit. Taylor Palmer, Lucid SoftwareI was also able to share this prototype with the engineering team to communicate exactly how the interaction should work.
