Today I got a wire frame on a napkin and was told to go build. I started going right into code and something felt wrong. I rushed into the project and didn’t really think about what we were trying to do.
I moved elements around and tweaked CSS and everything looked like shit and I had an ugly file and nothing I was happy with.
I opened up an account with uxpin and started laying out my ideas. Quickly the road blocks from my code went away. It’s important to have multiple ways to attack a project.
Sometimes it’s code or even just a piece of paper. It’s always nice to have a fallback when something is not working right. I think I will make sure to have a few prototyping methods
