Fail fast to succeed sooner: Design, Prototype and User Test


Full-day workshop • April 19th
The sooner you test and learn, the sooner you can iterate and achieve success. Learn how to design, prototype, and user test a modern iOS 11 application with Adobe XD, using Photoshop for complex bitmap editing and Illustrator for precise pixel-perfect icons. Start with high-fidelity designs, apply industry best practices, and use powerful UI kits to speed the design. Switch to prototyping to create interactions and define the best flow. Then wrap up with user testing.

Demian Borba, Strategic Development Manager at Adobe, will take you on a journey that will empower you to:

  • Design a modern mobile app for iOS 11
  • Create a fully working prototype on your iOS device
  • Visual hierarchy, negative space and composition
  • Share a web link to collect feedback and iterate
  • Manage colors and typography, and bring in images from Photoshop and icons from Illustrator
  • Run user testing sessions on your device to learn fast
