The rapid prototyping service at 6B enables organisations to realise a viable, market-ready product or feature at alpha-phase at speed. Prototypes can be designed, developed and deployed quickly, usually in a number of days or weeks.
During rapid prototyping we work with you closely to create assumptions and create testable hypotheses that can be validated quickly with customers and iterated on. Following testing we will work alongside your team to produce a POC (proof of concept), prototype or eventually an MVP (minimum viable product).
Prototyping With Purpose
Through several design sprints, we establish a clear purpose for the prototype. A POC can help you look at the feasibility of an idea and it’s a useful tool to use within your organisation to move a project forward, confirm viability or pitch for funding. We create low fidelity and high fidelity prototypes and test products and features with real customers quickly.
At 6B we design and develop many different types of prototype including:
InVision and XD prototypes – a quick way of prototyping user journeys and information architecture, a quick working visual prototype.
Principle & Origami prototypes – used to mock-up micro-interactions, transitions and animations; principle and origami prototypes are a great way to add depth and experience to a UI design.
Progressive tech prototypes – proof of concept and prototyping in progressive technologies, including AI and voice apps.
MVP – a minimum version of the final product, ready to be delivered to your customers, focused only on the core requirements of the early users of the product or feature.
In-browser prototypes – ‘clickable’ prototypes built with the same standards that we’d use for production websites, so you can be assured of the quality and it is a stepping stone to further development. An in-browser prototype looks and feels like the real thing, but with reduced functionality.
