Sketch + inVision are a deservedly popular combo for making hi-fi designs and prototypes. But I want to wave the flag for Axure RP, a powerful – and so, complicated – prototyping tool.
Axure can take you far beyond simply linking designs together with hotspots to rapidly developing a proper prototype with advanced interactions and functionality.
But all that ability means Axure needs a bit of an introduction for people used to Sketch, and that’s what I want to do here: help you approach its somewhat uninviting experience so you feel happy enough to explore its features a bit more.
This first part is a high level talk through what to expect, in the next part, once you’re prepared, I’ll walk you through a brief example project.
