Rapid Prototyping 1 of 3: Sketching & Paper Prototyping

Have you ever struggled with how to get from an idea to a high fidelity prototype?

Every design has to start somewhere and even at Google we often start with low fidelity prototyping options such as sketching and paper prototyping.

After all, the fidelity of your prototype should match the fidelity of your idea, so stop worrying and start sketching.

Rapid Prototyping 3 of 3: Native Prototyping

Discuss native prototyping and how to bring ideas to life by coding on native platforms and SDKs.

Want to unlock the full hardware functionality for your explorations? Need to test how motion, animation, interaction and moments of delight come together to shape an experience for your users?

With native prototyping you can build a realistic version of your idea, start validating your design direction and start pitching to the world!

In this video you’ll learn:
- How to start exploring ideas with technology by coding on native platforms and SDKs
- Importance of validating your direction with users on real devices
- How to use prototyping to communicate and sell your vision
