Rapid prototyping using Flash is a simple yet extremely powerful way to create great design solutions.
Prototyping in Flash…
A wide range of realworld prototypes will be shown, created for major brands and startups. You’ll see how these prototypes can be built very quickly and easily, with little or no Flash expertise.
The simplest and best method of prototyping in Flash involves no programming – you just draw the interface as you would with paper prototypes or wireframes. You can also make interactive prototypes in Flash with very simple code: gotoAndStop(frame). During the session you’ll even see an example of a highly interactive, fully functional prototype.
This session covers interaction design, usability testing and agile product/project management. It will show you how the whole team can achieve much better results with far less effort.
