You’re finally finished designing a beautiful website for your client but now you have to figure out a way to properly showcase your work. This is where Invision comes in handy.
Invision brings together your design within an interactive prototype to provide your client with a realistic rendition of their future website. Once you start to become familiar with Invision the possibilities for your completed design are endless. We will be breaking down this article into a few brief sections to help you become more familiar with the functionality of Invision.
Project Types + Prototypes
Invision provides a wide range of abilities for your design needs. From project types such as freehanding digital ideas to compiling boards with your design assets to the full prototype capability, Invision beautifully combines different design aspects to accomplish a completed project. There are a wide range of prototypes to consider for your design needs with options for desktop, tablet, and various mobile platforms.
Importing Your Design Into Invision
You’re not limited when it comes to importing your design work into Invision. Plugins are both available to sync your design from Sketch and Photoshop. If you don’t have one of these programs you also have the ability to simply drag and drop your design into the browser window.
When your design has been imported into Invision it’s time to give some functionality to that beautiful prototype. This is where hotspots come into the picture. Once in build mode Invision takes prototyping a step further by allowing users to drag and draw boxes, known as hotspots, to add a touch of functionality for your design and client. These can be added to every page and even saved as a template for multiple pages all the while adding consistent fluidity to your prototype.
Sharing Your Prototype
Sharing your prototype with a client can be as easy as 1, 2, 3. Invision provides users with multiple share points throughout the site including your main prototype landing page, managing your share links from the ellipses in the submenu, and even from individual prototype pages. Share with your fellow designer, your project manager, and even your client!
Interacting With Clients In Invision
When sharing your prototype you can enable commenting within Invision for easy client feedback. Simply click on any area of the prototype, type out your question or response, and there you have it! Don’t forget to make sure you’re in comment mode to see your client’s feedback.
