About This Class

In this class you will learn how to rapid wireframe and rapid prototype a mobile app using Balsamiq.

My name is Gene Guy and I’m a Product Designer and Developer. I tailored this class specifically for beginners and intermediate UX Designers who would like to learn how to use Balsamiq to wireframe and prototype as well as level up their UX design skills as demand for UX designers is increasingly on the rise.

After a short introduction, we will discuss the Balsamiq software, why wireframing is important, and go over the tools, basic concepts, and terminology of Balsamiq.  After that we will take what we have learned and I will walk you through a sample mobile app project that we will wireframe and prototype together.  You will also learn some tips and tricks along the way.

At the end of this course you’ll have the opportunity to create your own set of wireframes and prototype based on a mobile app of your choice. You will be able to use this set of wireframes and prototype as a project in your portfolio.

I can’t wait to see you in class and start wireframing and prototyping together! :)
