Join Brian Thurston Bralczyk for an in-depth discussion in this video What is Axure?, part of Axure for UX Design.
Before we dive into things, we should really start out by talking about what Axure actually is and who should use it and why. Axure RP is a really robust tool, and it's used by web designers, user experience designers, and researchers. And they use it for visualizing design concepts to help clients make decisions. It's also to help provide clear visual guidance to development teams who will build the website or the application. And researchers use it to test design concepts with users to get early feedback on ideas before spending costly dollars on development.
Axure created their tools specifically for designers, to help them create rapid prototypes. And, in fact, that's what the RP in Axure RP strands for. Because of this, the tool is often used to create very rough, quickly constructed output, for the sole purpose of presenting and vetting an idea early in the design process. But when you need it, it can also create output of much higher fidelity, and this provides a great way for researchers to test their application designs with customers, using a highly realistic prototype.
One of the reasons I love Axure is that the company provides an amazing level of support to its user. And the product keeps getting better with each new version. Overall, Axure is a fantastic piece of software for communicating ideas, and it's really got a robust set of tools to help you take your designs to a whole new level.
