Learn about the design process, and the three models that describe the key stages of design thinking. In this tutorial, Diane Cronenwett describes the design process, and how UX prototyping fits as part of the design process.
- Prototyping is a key phase in the design process…and as a product becomes more defined over time,…the prototyping techniques change accordingly.…Moving from low fidelity to a higher fidelity.…Before getting into fidelity though,…let's take a look at the design process.…There are a few different models of the design process…and how to apply design thinking to your product…or to anything, really.…Design thinking is a problem-solving method…and while there are a few different design process models,…the key steps are largely the same.…Let's take a look at the three key design process models.…
The first model is the design council's double diamond.…The double diamond focuses on key stages…of the design process.…Discover, define, develop, and deliver.…The second model is IDEO.org's…human-center design approach.…With the key stages defined as hear, create, and deliver.…The third model is Stanford d.school's approach…with the key stages of…empathize, define, ideate,…prototype, and test.…
These three models have new launched differences…
Explore the benefits, techniques, and tools of prototyping in this introductory course with designer Diane Cronenwett. Diane covers the basics of building effective prototypes with the right "fidelity," and getting more valuable feedback from your design testing. Learn how to build simple, satisfying prototypes on paper, and use digital prototyping tools like Moqups, InVision, and Axure to add interactivity and animation.
