Start prototyping your first Axure RP project, the easy way
User interface prototyping is here and it is quickly becoming the fundamental aspect of a web designer’s “deliverables”. Prototyping is the single most cost effective means to track usability problems, before you begin investing in visual design or coding. Axure RP is the industry’s foremost prototyping tool, and this book will help you quickly become an Axure master.
"Axure RP Starter Guide" is a practical, introductory guide that will take you step-by-step through the most important features of Axure RP, and how to start prototyping with it. It will expertly guide you through all the essential processes you need to know to start using Axure RP, as well as laying foundations for more advanced use of Axure.
The book starts by describing the UI design revolution, what has changed in the industry, and how you can best adapt your workflow to keep pace with these changes. It will guide you through installing an Axure environment, and how to equip it with the right widgets.
With this book, terms like “widget libraries”, “dynamic panels”, “page masters”, and “interaction logic” will become second-nature to you within a matter of hours. "Axure RP Starter Guide" also includes a detailed description of how to prototype a few common design patterns such as the module tabs pattern and the extensively used carousel.
After just ten short steps, you will have your first website up and running. The book will then help you in honing your skills by prototyping some common design patterns.
