Prototypes are great to help describe basic functionality and interactions to both stakeholders and developers. I’ve built lo-fi prototypes using Balsamiq to just show basic click-through interactions as well as high-fi prototypes in Axure with the ability to be used in more detailed scenarios of user testing. These are some examples of prototypes, sensitive information removed or obscured.
A small sample of prototypes done at Videa. Prototypes were created in Axure with complex interactivity done for user testing.
Mother Nature Network (MNN.com) Phase 1
Mother Nature Network went under a several phase redesign. Phase 1 was streamlining and consistency with very little rebranding or redesigning. The site had a number of fonts and colors that were used inconsistently, as well as a lot of alignment and grid issues. The site was also not responsive. A style guide was created in conjunction with the mocks and designs so it was easy to communicate what the standards were.
