About This Class

Learn how to successfully create wireframes for early stage product design with interaction designer Michael Angeles, as he shows how to use Balsamiq Mockups to design interfaces with product teams. Balsamiq runs on the desktop or in a web app, and also as a plugin for Google Drive, Confluence and Jira. 

In this 51 minute class, you'll see how concept selection can be tackled with low-fidelity wireframes, learn to create rough sketches to explore ideas, and then transform them into interaction design solutions that can be refined quickly, and polished for presentation. The class is perfect for product managers, developers, and those new to designing with wireframes. No prior knowledge or experience with interface design is required. By the end, you'll be able to present wireframes for a finished product idea and demonstrate a clickable prototype.

Great overview, with enough detail that I feel I can jump in and give it a try myself. Love that you put the final files in the class notes - that gives me another way to understand by doing. Great job!
Was a complete newbie to Balsamiq when I started watching these videos. Now I'm 5 videos in, and I think I'm ready to use it. Excellent instruction.
I took this course because I need a tool for creating mock-ups for apps. For me it was worth the time to go through it. I completed the first few sections on their software. The video is a bit fast sometimes on where to click or what to type (and controls on PC might not be the same). However, much of that I could figure out myself and not adding all the details kept the videos to a reasonable length.
