Creating a prototype is one of the most useful steps you can take when collaborating with a client during the design process of any project. Too much time is wasted in the form of countless emails, phone calls, and meetings so the designer can better understand what the client wants. When your client can see a visual representation of the design you’re creating for them, it allows them to either approve of where you’re going with the project or pinpoint any changes they’d like you to make. It takes away the hassle and the additional step of having to make more changes after the final project is presented. When you start with a prototype, you have a chance to get it right before setting it in stone saving time, money, and frustration in the long run. So, what’s the best design tool for UI/UX designers to make this vision a reality? We’re going to give you a quick rundown of the 11 best prototyping tools out there so you can choose the best one for you.
