You know what you can put in front of real users within 1 day during a hackathon or design sprint, without wasting time on pixel perfect design.
- Design and deliver new features, user interactions, test new concepts and create wireframes, mock-ups and build engaging (clickable) prototypes (for mobile and desktop) by using the latest in front-end technologies, to validate user value
