Low Fidelity Prototypes notes

Low Fidelity Prototypes include:

  1. Sketching;
  2. Storyboard;
  3.  Card-Based.

Sketching – is a free-hand depiction of images related to the final design.


Storyboards – are common way to provide a narrative putting the design into context. It provides an opportunity to see how the user will engage with a given scenario. The below storyboard is from RuoCheng.me.


Card-Based prototype –  allows us to see at the sequence of iterations the user might have with the designed interface.




Usability.com/Prototyping – includes an excellent graph by Tracy Lepore visually showing the evolution from sketch to design.
