Really appreciate all the feedback!
Dane Wesolko — Thanks for your thoughts.
I believe there is a huge opportunity cost in prototyping with basic prototyping tools at every stage of the design phase. Far better investing time in building your own structured prototyping repository. This guarantees fluid iteration later down the line.
For me, every product designer should have a prototyping repository in github. This repo can have a multitude of branches suited for every design stage inc initial ‘kick off’. If you haven’t tried it, I highly encourage you to give it a go. Would love to hear how it worked out for you!
