MaGIC Academy: Wireframing and MVP



Without being exposed to theories and various methods to create effective wireframes, most will jump right into building a product using a very first product design. Don't make this mistake of wasting precious resources on a less-than-perfect product! Gain design insight early through a low-cost, rapid iterative design technique known as wireframing and prototyping.

Think through larger user experience concepts to design a solution that users want and need, tailor the design to maximize user uptake and generate revenue. Through this workshop, you will gain hands-on experience in building a user centered design process, building wireframes and then translating a business idea into an effective Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Also discover tools and useful resources that can boost design fidelity.

Key Learnings

  1. Understanding of how the wireframing process can build designs to best suit user needs
  2. Discovery of tools often used to create effective wireframes and MVP
  3. Appreciation of how wireframes are an integral part of achieving a MVP

Target Audience

This workshop is ideal for startups and entrepreneurs who are keen on learning about the technical side of UI design, and gaining exposure to the wireframing and MVP process and tools.
