Prototypes / Concept Testing

Think, Test, Think Again…

A great example to illustrate the value of prototypes are tools. Tools are challenging to design. That’s because functional needs, what the tool needs to do, are as important as human factors, what a person needs.

Our experiences with tool design have taught us that prototyping early in the design process will put you on the right path.

The images in the slideshow show what thinking and prototyping looks like. The final image shows the finished product.

You never know where you’ll end up, but if you prototype early, you usually end up solving the problem.
