To prototype, the ideas must be given a manifested visual expression others can understand and relate to. It is imperative to visualise the ideas in order for both participants and “clients” to share, understand, test and validate the ideas.
If possible, the prototype is communicated to and/or tested in the field in order to attain feedback. The aim is to conceptualize the ideas and solutions generated in the Ideation stage. You are working towards being able to bridge the gap between idea and action. All activities in this element will focus on how build a prototype.
