Rapid Prototyping

We can help you to create a viable prototype to test with customers.

Graphite works with clients to design and prototype digital products to test with users. We focus on human-centred design and use rapid prototyping to create an early working version of products, features, ideas, and experiences. 

Creation of a prototype makes it possible to create an experience which delivers value to a customer and the business in a short amount of time - expressing the vision in a visually rich, clickable prototype.

 

 

Prototype wireframes

 

   

A prototype can be the perfect launchpad for further phases of development and investment. The process consists of ideation and testing to validate ideas, products and features with customers quickly. It helps to accelerate product development and user feedback with a reduced implementation cost. 

Even when an innovative idea seems right, it’s important not to make a huge investment and find out later that actually there isn't customer demand, or business acceptance of a feature or product. A prototype allows you to make an investment into a product that can test demand before a fully-fledged product is launched. It is vital to understand your customer's needs and wants and gain stakeholder support when creating a digital product.

Our approach is tailored based on your requirements to ensure that we capture the most actionable data that can be used to inform your product roadmap. The results from a prototype can strengthen a business case to create a full version of the product and convince senior leadership to see value in your idea. Graphite uses many different tools for prototyping but often use InVision. Invision is a quick and easy tool allowing us to take designs from Sketch and let users click through different states or pages.  

Graphite has worked with clients including Mercer and Vhi to design and develop successful rapid prototypes.
