Join AIGA SD at Union Cowork Encinitas as Demian Borba teaches us why prototyping with tools like Adobe XD constitutes the most critical phase of Iterative Design.

Whether you’re building a website, mobile app, or game interface, prototyping is all about communication and hypothesis testing. Prototyping gives teams a way to experiment with something that’s tangible and shortens the psychological distance between the user and the solution. Demian Borba—one of Adobe XD’s first Product Managers and current Strategic Development Manager—will show us how to build and test prototypes with XD, helping businesses “fail fast” to succeed sooner.

Built for designers by designers, Adobe XD is a UX design tool that was created with users at the center of the process. We’ll learn how you, too, can achieve successful user-centered design through prototyping.

Don’t miss out! Demian will be sharing the latest features in the app just announced this month at Adobe MAX in Los Angeles. We’ll hear all the new releases for XD and how the features can help your design workflow.
