Boost Your Design Skills with Digital Tools | Sketch, Wireframe, Prototype

Welcome to this informative blog post where we will explore the different digital tools available for sketching, wireframing, and prototyping. As a product manager, it is essential to have a good grasp on these skills to create visually appealing and user-friendly designs. In this post, we will discuss some popular tools and their functionalities, giving you insights that will help you excel in the field of product management.

Digital Tools for Wireframing and Sketching

When it comes to wireframing and sketching, there are several fantastic digital tools to choose from. One of the most popular options is ‘Basmi,’ which allows you to create wireframes and even interactive interfaces that resemble hand-sketches. It is available for both Windows and Mac platforms and is an excellent tool for those who struggle with traditional sketching. If you are new to Basmi, I recommend checking out the embedded tutorial for a comprehensive understanding of its features.

Another great tool for wireframing is ‘Pop’ by Marvel. If you have already created wireframes on paper, you can simply take pictures of your sketches and use Pop to create quick and interactive prototypes. By adding hotspots to your images, you can link different interfaces and create an impressive prototype in no time. This tool is perfect for showcasing your ideas to stakeholders and getting initial feedback.

Enhancing Prototyping with Invision

Invision is an industry-standard tool for prototyping your designs. If you have already created UI screens, Invision allows you to link all the different touchpoints, buttons, and entry areas to create a high-fidelity prototype. This gives your end-users a realistic experience and provides valuable insights for further improvement. Invision also has a tutorial embedded in this post, which I highly recommend checking out to fully grasp its capabilities.

Streamlining the Design Process with Zeppelin

Once you have designed your UI screens using tools like Sketch or Adobe Photoshop (for web design), it is crucial to collaborate effectively with developers to ensure pixel-perfect implementation. This is where Zeppelin comes in. Zeppelin automates the process of generating specifications for developers. It provides precise measurements for elements such as image sizes, text sizes, and gaps between different interface components. By using Zeppelin, you can save time and avoid the hassle of manually measuring and slicing designs.

In summary, these digital tools play a significant role in boosting your design skills and streamlining the product management process. Basmi and Pop are excellent choices for wireframing and creating quick prototypes, respectively. Invision takes prototyping to the next level by offering high-fidelity interactions and user journeys. Finally, Zeppelin ensures seamless collaboration between designers and developers by providing precise design specifications. As a product manager, having a good grasp of these tools will undoubtedly enhance your productivity and help you deliver exceptional design experiences.

So, go ahead and explore these tools, experiment with them, and stay updated with the latest advancements in the field of design. Remember, the right set of digital tools can make all the difference in creating remarkable and visually appealing products.

Flipped Classroom

 

Our learners learn by discussing and debating on real-world problems and are actively involved in the solution design process.

Conventional classroom

Sage on Stage

  • A teacher shares the knowledge via live presentations
  • Teachers are at the center of the learning and considered sage on stage
  • Knowledge transfer is one-way and the focus is on knowledge retention
  • Learners don’t get to discuss their ideas or opinions in the class
  • Hence, most learners are unable to apply these concepts in their everyday work life
  • Great for scenarios, where knowledge acquisition and retention is the only focus

Flipped classroom

Guide on side

  • Learners are the center of the universe
  • Classes are meant for healthy discussions and debates on topics
  • Learners go through the material on their own provided by the mentors
  • Mentors work as guide on the side, with the learners
  • Learners develop skills on problem solving, critical thinking and self-learning – the 21st century skills that employers look for
  • Great for scenarios where application skills matter
  • 21st century skills require guide on the side. Simply acquiring knowledge is worthless now.
