This is an additional step to the usual design phase for a new website, or a website that is being redesigned; feedback so far indicates that the tool really helps customers translate ideas in a more visual way.
How it works
After an initial meeting to discuss the project brief, Kontrolit would produce a simple layout of a customer's proposed Home Page and any major hub pages deemed necessary.
Getting customers' feedback
Kontrolit director Tim Howes explained, "The prototype tool enables us to put this layout online in a way that customers can interact with. We can add simple animations to help explain essential page functionality;
"Once the prototype has been agreed, we proceed to the design draft stage as normal."
The prototype tool enables customers to feedback their ideas at a much earlier stage of the design phase - this can make a big difference later on in the subsequent design and build phases, ensuring the smooth running of the project.
Mr Howes added, "The tool allows customers to focus on the important structure and functionality of the page without being distracted by things that can be addressed at a later stage of the design process, such as fonts, colour schemes and images.
"If you are a “visual” person, the prototype tool can be very helpful in translating your ideas into a finished website."
