I LOVE TO MAKE THINGS
There’s always time to ideate and prototype something new. It’s a great exercise for the brain, and it answers questions—just as it suggests new avenues of discovery.
In my experience, prototypes more often than not lead to client sign-offs and new work. It’s fun to take something to my client that they aren’t expecting. Show off the team’s skills. Push the envelope.
Prototyping is among my favorite activities. Whether they’re paper prototypes or a quickly-coded HTML5 page, an intricate Invision creation or a simple deck on an iPhone, I get to be a mad scientist/artist. Not everything goes into production—but that’s okay.
Check out some quickly made prototypes from the past year or so below. Some became internal tools. Others didn’t go anywhere at all. You can also read about Tour Truck 360º, SWAG Magazine, and Hubert’s Lickable Screen Protectors which all started as prototypes.
