Experimenting with design choices is highly desirable in the design process. As a design evolves via multiple design iterations and as fidelity increases the time it takes to experiment and try out different design ideas also increases. This is not the case for designers that use Antetype.
Several features of Antetype such as Smart Dragging, Automatic Layout and Widgets all enable designers to experiment with different ideas for a design without having to do lots of work.
Smart Dragging provides immediate feedback as the designer makes changes by immediately updating the design while objects are dragged around the design.
Smart Dragging is only possible because of the advanced Automatic Layout system in Antetype. If you would like to read more about how Antetype reduces the time spent working on tedious jobs please read “The end of Nudging” to find out more about Automatic Layout.
Widgets also allow designers to experiment and immediately see how changes impact an entire screen.
Widgets are a key feature of Antetype, enabling reusability and consistency with little effort. If you would to read more about widgets in Antetype please read “Consistency, Consiztency, Consitency…”.
Having the freedom to rapidly experiment and “play” with a design encourages a designer to quickly and more deeply understand the various options that are available. Antetype enables faster iterations and more experimentation because it is designed from the ground up to be a unique UI design tool build specially for UI designers.
You can download a free 30 day trial of Antetype from our website and see for yourself.
