Design User Experience on Your Shopify Site with InVision
Shopify remains to be the top choice for an eCommerce platform among big and small businesses alike, and it’s not hard to see why. The eCommerce platform continues to update and innovate its services and functionality to keep up with emerging industry trends.
It’s a great way for businesses to manage a large inventory, get beautiful design options, and have access to apps that can increase their Shopify store’s features. Shopify’s platform lets business owners focus on the actual business by handling the technical aspects.
If you’ve decided to give eCommerce a try and have had a hand in designing your Shopify store’s look you might have heard of a tool called InVision, or other related software like Sketch and Figma which has tools and functions that let you create design prototypes for your website. These tools are mainly used for prototyping, an integral part of the design process. In this article, we’ll focus on Invision.
What is prototyping? Why is it important?
When creating your website, an important part of the design process is something called prototyping. This is where you or your designers create an interactive mockup of your Shopify store to check on the flow and usability of your website before pushing it into development. This is a key step because it allows your team to review your website and share feedback while it is still in the early stages. This step can save you from wasting invested time and money.
What is Invision?
InVision is a web-based prototyping tool that lets users create digital product designs in one place with tools for ideation, design, prototyping, and design management. It is where designers can create highly interactive mockups for websites and apps. It’s a helpful tool to help create that perfect user experience.
InVision syncs your Sketch or Photoshop files and uses its platform to add hotspots that transform them into a fully interactive mockup.
