FAQs about 1-Hour Talks

While many UX teams are familiar with the concept of visual fidelity (the difference between wireframes and mock-ups), fewer acknowledge the different functional fidelities of prototypes.

In this online seminar, we will discuss:

  • how modern screen design tools encourage teams to adopt a workflow that favors surface design over interaction design,
  • how differing functional fidelities can help teams explore, communicate, and usability test the functional elements of user interfaces, and
  • what you need to consider to create a high functional-fidelity prototype.
