Prototyping

A Practitioner’s Guide 

Published: November 2009 Digital: ISBN 1-933820-22-5

by Todd Zaki Warfel

Prototyping

Todd's text offers a comprehensive view of prototyping—from the role of prototypes in socializing decision making and achieving organizational buy-in, to the actual pragmatics of creating interactive artifacts. This is a solid book for those 'in the trenches'—the designers doing the actual work that ends up in the actual products we use every day."

—Jon Kolko Editor-in-Chief, interactions and Associate Creative Director, Frog

Prototyping is a great way to communicate the intent of a design both clearly and effectively. Prototypes help you to flesh out design ideas, test assumptions, and gather real-time feedback from users.

With this book, Todd Zaki Warfel shows how prototypes are more than just a design tool by demonstrating how they can help you market a product, gain internal buy-in, and test feasibility with your development team.
