In Fireworks CS4: Rapid Prototyping, designer Jim Babbage deconstructs real-world examples that show the interoperability between Fireworks and other Adobe applications. Jim lays out the schedule for good prototyping, from wireframing to storyboarding to creating multi-page mockups for design feedback. Along the way, he covers advanced imaging topics, such as adding interactivity for a realistic mockup and exporting a Flex mockup as an FXG file. Exercise files accompany the course.
(Music playing.) Hi! I'm Jim Babbage. As a Web designer and teacher, I know the importance of getting the project done on time and to spec. The best way I know to expedite the process is through rapid prototyping. You can get customer to sign off before a lot of work has been done. You can also change directions more easily. Using Fireworks CS4, I'll show you the range of prototyping options available. We'll look at multi-page mockups, AIR prototyping, HTML prototyping and customizing a Flex skin.
We will deconstruct a completed wireframe storyboard and then build these deliverables from scratch. Along the way, I'll talk about advanced imaging topics, including vector masking, using text in mockups, incorporating multiple images into design elements, streamlining your workflow with symbols, creating simple and complex rollover effects for a mockup and manipulating Fireworks HTML for a more realistic mockup. In short, I'll be showing how to make your life easier by saving time and cutting down the frustration of last- minute changes and misunderstandings.
