Product Prototyping

Share your vision and build products your users will love.

The importance of prototyping. 

A prototype is a low-cost, experimental model of an idea. Product prototypes help bring ideas to life, test design concepts, and pitch your business’ vision to key stakeholders. It allows your business and users to have an interactive experience without fully developing a product. This preventive workflow averts costly mistakes while highlighting the best design and technological direction for your product.

User-centered design. 

Spiria’s team of experts is committed to build the solution that creates the most value for your users and the best ROI for your business. Our designers use prototypes to effectively explore and present design ideas, evaluate new investment opportunities and test concepts before launching them. Whether you’re launching a new product or updating existing features, our experienced designers create something your users will actually want and use. With product prototyping we can focus on tested features your users expect, validated user flows, and clean visuals that facilitate user navigation. 

At the heart of Spiria’s design process.

First, our designers turn to paper prototypes using sketches to outline steps in user flows, explore various layouts, and show basic application structure (wireframes). 

Then we move onto digital prototyping, using InVision, where we build real-time experiences without any coding. This prototyping lets users have a personal experience with the design—perfect for explaining design details to developers or running user tests to validate design.

During the final stage of prototyping, called native prototyping, our experts bring your ideas to life by quickly coding a working prototype in native language using development kits. With native prototyping, we can test using real devices and ask actual users for specific feedback on actionable items using a low-commitment solution.

With a strong prototype in hand, your business can confidently pitch your vision to stakeholders and rest assured the resulting product will engage users and meet your business goals.

A new mission statement for Spiria!

Companies must evolve to adapt to changing market conditions. With 18 years’ experience, Spiria has certainly been through its fair share of transformation. While our foundational value has remained immutable — namely, to serve companies rather than a software product — we have matured and deepened. Let’s face it, we’ve gone from two dudes in a basement to over 175 people in four cities, and we’ve incorporated new skills and significantly expanded our service offering in the process. So yes, you could say we’ve evolved!
