Prototype & Usability Testing
About this collection
There can be a surprisingly large gap between designs that look and feel intuitive and designs that actually are intuitive when real users attempt to use new features to carry out tasks and achieve goals. Testing interactive prototypes and live products with users enables most of your iteration to happen before launch, resulting in more efficient use of your team's time and happier customers.
