App Design

Interactive Prototypes
Don't Need An App?
Think Again
Mobile and web-based apps have become essential offerings for most businesses. The rise in mobile device usage means that smartphone apps have become a key marketing and e-commerce tool for companies of all sizes. In today’s tech-dependent society, developing a dynamic, user friendly mobile or web-based app is a top priority for every type of business.

Custom App Design and Visual Prototyping is a fast, economical way to explore app ideas without committing to the expensive and time-consuming coding process.

App Prototype
What Is It?
A mobile app prototype is an interactive model of the end product. It communicates the design and navigation of the app to stakeholders in order to maximize the efficiency of the development process. Prototypes bring ideas to life and transform a creative vision into a reality. App prototyping validates an idea as well as allows for exploration of new ideas and solutions in the beginning phases of the app creation process.

When it’s time for your company to create its own app, Michael Hanna Design’s App Design and Visual Prototyping service can save you time and resources by designing and visually prototyping your app prior to coding. Here are some of the benefits of our service:

Give Life to Your App User Interface (UI) Design

We offer comprehensive app visual design, prototyping and simulation services for all platforms and devices, enabling you to fully visualize how your app will look and function before committing to the expensive coding and developing process. We utilize the most up to date, industry leading software to design, create, and prototype all elements of your app.

Explore Creative Ideas and Innovate

App Visual Prototyping not only helps validate a design idea, it also allows for quick and economical exploration of new ideas and innovations early in the development process.

Measure Project Feasibility and Minimize Waste

App Visual Prototyping allows the design team and stakeholders to experiment with the mobile application, giving them the freedom to learn and iterate faster and more economically. It is one of the most effective ways to determine feasibility of a mobile app project, while at the same time minimizing waste by identifying and correcting flaws in the early stages of development.

Prototypes can help increase project estimate accuracy by 50% and reduce clarification requests by almost 80%.

Iterate Quickly on Your Design Concept

Prototypes serve as powerful development tools that can significantly minimize overall time and cost of the project. Our expert designers can quickly refine and revise designs; we can even work collaboratively in real time.

Use Prototypes as Powerful Presentation Tools

Instead of laboring to explain flows and functionality through static wireframes and sitemaps, you can send stakeholders an interactive prototype and allow them to experience how the app will work in real-life.

Reduce Overall App Development Time and Cost

When prototyping is not a part of app development process, recoding the app again to facilitate design changes or flaws can be extremely time consuming and affect your time to market. With prototypes, you can identify bugs or make multiple changes right at the design phase itself, helping to significantly reduce overall development time and cost. All assets developed for the prototype can be exported and provided to your developer in any format and resolution required, ensuring a seamless transition from prototype to live coding.
