Rapid Prototyping; Tools, Methods & Best Practices
Rapid prototyping is one of the most exciting activities. It’s an opportunity to unleash creativity, experiment with seemingly crazy ideas, and develop ideas without boundaries. Great ideas don’t always require a lot of time. Rapid Prototyping is part of the design process after you have a clear grasp of the problem and your users’ needs. Goal is to reduce our own tendencies to overthink, agonize and get distracted from the problem in front of us.
