Design and Prototyping FAQs

Michelle Chu -

How long does it usually take Alpha to create mockups and prototypes?
Average turnaround is 5 hours or less for minor edits. For larger prototypes, average turnaround is 1-2 days.

Can Alpha edit prototypes that clients provide?
Yes, we can create and edit prototypes created in Photoshop, Sketch, InVision, Axure, JustinMind, Marvel, and Principle, among many other tools. We always duplicate a copy of the prototype you provide, so that we can make edits on the copy and not your working prototype.

Currently, we do not edit prototypes that have been created in code.

Can Alpha create physical product prototypes for testing?
Yes—we can use images that illustrate physical products, to represent the product concept.

What file formats does Alpha accept?
We accept all file formats. For complex prototypes, if possible, we prefer layered files.
