Rapid Prototype Design - validate your idea faster

Turn your product ideas into a tangible, testable prototype that can be tried out by anyone. Validate your product ideas quickly, iterate confidently, and accelerate your product development.
Kickstart your prototype!

FROM PRODUCT VISION TO CUSTOMER VALIDATION

Software and Hardware prototyping

So, you already understand the problem to solve and user needs? Now it's time to create a tangible prototype to quickly validate if you are on the right track with the solution.

Transform your product idea into a clickable, user-tested prototype. Rapid Prototyping is a fast-tracked route from researching customer needs to an initial validation of your product idea. Immediately start user testing and investor engagement.

Accelerate validation, minimize risks, maximize impact

Turn your idea into a clickable product demo in a snap!

Get immediate user feedback

Test your core features with real users to validate the demand and usability of your product.

Increase investor readiness

A clickable prototype makes your pitch to investors more compelling and tangible.

Save money before development

Identify design flaws or unnecessary features and iterate product ideas cheaply before full-scale development.

Save on your development time

Speed up the development cycle by resolving uncertainties early on.

Remove the guesswork from your roadmap

Gain a clear action plan for development, reducing guesswork and missteps.

Enhanced team alignment

A prototype gets everyone on the same page, from developers to business stakeholders.

Learn how Rapid Prototyping with punktum looks like

Rapid prototyping means 2-4 weeks from the start to a prototype that's ready to show to your customers and stakeholders.

Week 1.1 - Discovery and Planning

Initial Consultation: We kick off with a deep-dive meeting to understand your startup's goals, target audience, and the problem you're solving for them.

Scope Definition: Based on the initial consultation, we define the scope of the prototype, including drafting key functionalities and user flows.

Can it be built? Our tech experts also join the meetings to help you validate the technical feasibility of the features you aim to prototype.

Outcome: Action plan

Week 1.2 - Workflows and Wireframes

Product Ideation Workshop: An intensive design workshop helps us to ideate, quickly validate with you, and design how the solution might work, with user story maps, feature ideas, and simple diagrams of main user interaction flows.

Wireframing: Based on those, we create low-fidelity wireframes (black and white drafts of each screen) to map out the user journey and key interactions.

Outcome: Prototype outline

Week 2-3 - Interactive Prototype

Interactive Prototyping: We use design tools like Figma to create an interactive clickable prototype that mimics real-world user interactions, and incorporates your startup's branding elements.

Stakeholder Review: A mid-point review with stakeholders to ensure the prototype is aligned with business objectives.

User Testing: Optionally, we can already conduct remote user tests to gather initial feedback and make necessary adjustments.

Outcome: Completed ready-to-use Prototype

Week 4 - Refinement and Delivery

Iteration: Based on user feedback and stakeholder input, we iterate on the design and functionality.

Final Review: A final walkthrough with stakeholders to approve the prototype.

Delivery: We hand over the interactive prototype, along with all design assets and documentation.

By the end of this 2-4 week process, you'll have a validated, user- and investor-ready prototype that resonates with your target audience and can help you show traction to secure early-stage funding.
