The definition of prototype is, “A simulation or sample version of a final product, which is used for testing before develop.” The goal of a prototype is to test products (and product ideas) before sinking lots of time and money into the final product. Creating a prototype that demonstrates the functionality of an application in development can positively impact final design as well as the overall project. Here are six ways interactive prototypes can help your application initiative.
A prototype allows key stakeholders within the organization an opportunity to see the application design as it was intended to be used, including buttons and interactions working in a manner that is as close to the final product as possible. Most key stakeholders are not designers or developers. They are end users of applications and are used to see an application in its working state. When static, non-interactive prototypes are delivered to these key decision makers, more time is spent discussing and describing how a particular feature is going to work and less time on understanding the overall design. When key stakeholders have the ability to interact with the final application design, the buy-in process and ongoing support are usually stronger.
A wireframe is the first real process for a project. It turns the abstract ideas into something tangible without distraction. Wireframes enable one party can send its opinions to another party clearly, ensuring all parties are on the same page.
n many instances, clients may not understand jargons like dynamic slideshow, news feeds, Google map integration,product filtering, breadcrumb and hundreds of other types of features. A wireframe provides a clear communication to a client how these features will function, where they will appear on the specific page and how useful they might actually be.
Our graphic designers start the iterative process of mocking-up visual page designs to finally come up with thoughtfully conceived, beautifully executed user interfaces that truly work.
At this stage, moodboards with examples of color palettes, texture and typography are utilized to define customer’s aesthetics preferences and design directions.
The clickable prototypes delivered by eSparkBiz enable users to quickly test simple elements or complex behaviors, interacting with the prototype as they would with the end product.
Requiring little time and effort, these prototypes allow for identifying opportunities for improvement, driving adoption, productivity, user satisfaction and profitability of the final solution.
A proof-of-concept (POC) touches on all levels of the system implementation, requiring, besides UI prototyping, engagement of software engineers for development of a specific slice of functionality.
Project teams at eSparkBiz produce POCs rapidly and efficiently, providing our customers with alpha products for evaluation and validation with all stakeholders prior to hand off for production development.
The Prototyping UXD is based on principles of good design inspired by the International Typographic Style. We emphasize simplicity, clarity, and universality to achieve beautiful and practical experiences.
Perfect case of why you should leave things to the professionals. I had tried to host a VPS myself for some software I was using and spent days running into complications. I reached out to PIXELBIRD™ and they had an action plan together almost immediately. Since the issue has been resolved its been smooth sailing.

PIXELBIRD™ created a beautiful website for my small wedding hire business. They listened to what I needed and the end result was amazing! Better than anything I could have imagined. Packages offered by PIXELBIRD™ are competitively priced without lacking features. Not only does the website look gorgeous, it is also functional. They also took the time to teach me how to manage the website myself and gave me all the resources I need to do so. I highly recommend PIXELBIRD™ for a professional website.
