Rapid design ideation with Balsamiq Wireframes

We’ve been a huge fan of Balsamiq Wireframes and have used it in tons of scenarios from explaining ideas to clients during meetings to low fidelity ideations to quickly visualise what’s on our minds.

You might be wondering, Balsa.. what?!

Yes, you’ve heard it right. Balsamiq Wireframes.

Concept testing using paper prototypes

We’ve recently completed an interesting concept testing for a client in the travel industry. The entire test was made up of printed wireframes which we’ve designed and cut into small components. 

The test setup with a make-shift microphone holder + IPEVO document camera hacked together with GoPro mounts.

During the test, participants were asked to go through a series of tasks to help us understand their mental models when thinking about a travel destination and to piece up pages based on their travel needs.

Overall, we had fun and learned a lot from the experience of introducing analog components into our (otherwise, digital prototype) testing process. 

Sharing my product design journey with the IxDA Taiwan community

Earlier in Jan 2019, I made a trip to Taipei to visit the IxDA Taiwan local group which was one of the oldest IxDA local group in Asia, established in 2010. Next year, they’ll be celebrating their 10th year anniversary and it’s awesome to see how they’ve grown over the years.

I did a sharing of my design journey over the last 15 years and gave some insights to the UX landscape here in Singapore. It was heartening to see such a group of passionate and engaging audience that evening asking many thought provoking questions around Startups in Asia, working in Singapore, advice for those who wish to work here etc.

Lovely folks from IxDA Taipei and thoughtful space for the event 👏🏻

They wrote a Medium article about what I shared and you can view it right here. Heads up, it’s in Traditional Chinese 😬.
