Prototyping Tools

Low Fidelity

Wireframes

Wireframes, as the lowest fidelity prototype, allow you to create a blueprint, a starting point - a kind of outline for the design and development of your mobile app or web solution.

Mid Fidelity

Mockups

Mockups are mid-fidelity prototypes that illustrate more detailed representations of your mobile app or web solution. Mockups can be a standalone illustration, layered or other type of image; or mockups could be combined as a series of image, bundled together to represent a set of screens, features and/or functions.

High Fidelity Prototypes

Let's Call Them Prototypes

High-fidelity prototypes, for a better name, are the ultimate graphical and interactive representation of a mobile app or web solution. These types of prototypes have all the details of mockups, but combine interactivity, like wireframes. This allows for walking through and testing a prototype that looks and feels like a real mobile app or website.

Distinguishing between mockups, wireframes, and prototypes can tough because they have been identified as each other many times over. From the most basic form of prototyping, sketches, to using the latest digital tools, the detail, quality and interaction is measured by it's fidelity. Fidelity comes in three flavors -low, medium, and high. Distinguishing between mockups, wireframes, and prototypes can tough because they have been identified as each other many times over.
