Our experience has taught us that a great prototype is what stands between an idea and a successful digital product.

We know how much enthusiasm lies behind a great idea. And we are aware of how our enthusiasm could push us to put it immediately into practice, because we believe that is the right one - the idea no one has ever thought of before.

And at the same time, there are (and have been) millions of hopeful people who have tried to develop, implement and launch their new ideas onto the market and ended up failing - after having spent a great amount of money. In vain.

Make sure you are building the right it before you build it right

Prototype first

When we have an idea for a new product or service, before moving forward to its implementation, the best thing to do is to determine if it could really work.

To prevent unpleasant surprises, you should build a prototype that can be used and tested to verify its functionality.

Testing an idea through a prototype

Validating an idea through a prototype allows you to determine whether that product or service performs correctly and does what it is supposed to do. The prototype helps you detect bugs, understand which aspects of the idea can be improved, what is worth to develop and invest in, and what can be skipped.

If you have an idea or project in mind, we can work with you and your team to design and build a prototype. Furthermore, if you'd like, we can use the Design Sprint methodology to give your idea structure

Why should I invest in a prototype?

To speed up the creation of ideas and the project development

It allows you to validate concepts, get real feedback from users, learn from procedures and bugs to carry out improvements, make decisions and speed up the development phase.

To avoid failure

We start with your idea, carefully examine it with you and then develop creative solutions to identify opportunities and risks, enhance your idea's strengths and minimize the weaknesses or even eradicate them completely.

To explore technologies

It allows you to select and test the best digital solutions, combining innovation, functionality and usability.

To save resources

Starting from a prototype makes you save time, money and resources. Kicking off a project without building a prototype leads to additional work for your team, who will not be able to concentrate on anything else.

To focus on your business

You can focus on your own activity as well as on opportunities, resources, deadlines and budget.

To offer people useful experiences

By involving all internal and external stakeholders, we can create useful, enjoyable and user-friendly experiences, user flows and interactions.

To create better connections and communication

Involving stakeholders also means involving internal staff members in the ideation phase and coming up with out-of-the-box ideas.

Learn by doing

You can only learn by doing: the goal is to understand and analyze the dynamics during the test phase.

A prototype reduces misunderstandings

A prototype makes a product or service tangible even in the testing phase, minimizing the risk of misunderstandings. This allows your team to internally collaborate and communicate without misinterpretations.

The benefits of building a prototype

We prepare all the necessary documentation, including a project cost estimate and a product development plan. After developing the prototype and defining the fundamental requirements, we determine what and how to develop and make an estimation, both in terms of costs and time.

The result

An interactive prototype showing the main features of your desired product or service, which can be tested by users before the final product or service is developed.

Combined Shape
From the initial prototype to the actual development

If you are satisfied with the results of the prototype and the user tests, we are ready to code and create a breathtaking design.

A faster development (also outsourced)

Thanks to the experience and information gained during the prototyping and testing phases, we can develop the project quickly and deliver a ready-to-use digital final product or MVP. Prototyping enables a faster development process over the course of the next phase.
For the actual development of your digital product, you are not forced to collaborate with us. You decide with whom and how you want to proceed with development.
Through the prototyping phase, we assist you in defining each specification and screening each requirement, making the subsequent phases of development easier and faster. If you already have a development team, we would be pleased to assist it throughout the development phase.

How much does a prototype cost?

Cost estimates for prototypes strongly depends on aspects such as product type, market, used platforms and technical complexity. A prototype typically takes at least 5 to 6 working days to be developed. As an alternative, you could consider joining a Design Sprint session with us!

The best way to get an estimate in terms of costs and time is to contact us and tell us more about your project!

Do you want to tell us more about your idea?

You can include some details to let us know more about your idea. We will get back to you within 24 hours.
