About This Class

Have you ever had an app idea (come on, I know you have), tried to explain it to someone, but couldn't get your point across? Yeah. We all know that blank stare. Encouraging. 

This class will teach you how to use one of my favorite UX tools, Balsamiq, to quickly set up wireframing for rapid prototyping...meaning that you'll be able to show - not tell - your latest and greatest web or mobile application project. 

Balsamiq is extremely easy-to-use and it's well-received by the creative community because it's seamless, easy to understand, and creates low fidelity wireframing in a snap. It's like sketching on a whiteboard, but via computer. Other wireframing tools are expensive, really hard to learn, and have at least 14 features that you'll probably never use. 

What you'll learn:

  • Get acquainted with the system
  • Learn how to navigate it
  • Discover what each button is for 
  • Use the tools and apply them to the canvas
  • Create a mock-up of an application

At the end of the class, you'll be able to create your own mock-up or follow along with the example we did.

If you're an entrepreneur, product manager, project manager, or creative freelancer then I highly recommend you start using this tool, you really don’t want to miss the opportunity to learn rapid prototyping with Balsamiq.

Director at Sprintkick

Hi, I'm Evan Kimbrell.

Thanks for checking out my classes.

Currently, I'm the Founder, Director of Sprintkick, a referral-based full service digital agency based out of San Francisco. Over the past 4 years, I've overseen the development and launch of over 100 web and mobile apps. Clients range from 1-2 man startups bootstrapping their initial idea to multibillion dollar Fortune 100's like Wal-Mart, Dick's Sporting Goods, & GNC.

Prior to Sprintkick, I worked as a VC for a firm called Juvo Capital, based out of L.A. I spearheaded the firm's expansion into the Silicon Valley deal flow and into the Consumer Web tech category.

Before working for Juvo, in the long, long ago, I was a co-founder for an educational software startup called ScholarPRO that raised a ton of money and then spectacularly blew up (in the bad way). Before it exploded like the Death Star, I went through 5 tech incubators (yes 5) with Tech Stars, Excelerate Labs, MassChallenge, Babson Venture Program, and Sparkseed.

That's enough about me. Hope you enjoy my class!
