If you’re a web developer, then you’ve probably heard of “high fidelity designs.” But what exactly are they?
In short, high fidelity designs are detailed, pixel-perfect mockups of a website or app that provide developers with a clear vision of the final product.
In this blog post, we’ll take a more in-depth look at high fidelity designs and why they’re so important for web development projects.
What are High Fidelity Designs?
High fidelity designs (sometimes known as “high-fidelity designs”) are detailed, pixel-perfect mockups of a website or app. They provide developers with a clear vision of the final product and help to ensure that the final product meets the client’s expectations.
High-fidelity designs are typically created in Figma or Sketch and include all of the elements that will be present in the final product, including images, text, buttons and forms.
The level of detail in high-fidelity designs is much higher than that of low fidelity designs. Where as in the low-fidelity phase, you may only see a wireframe.
Why Are High Fidelity Designs Important?
As we mentioned before, high fidelity designs help to ensure that the final product meets the client’s expectations.
This is because high-fidelity designs give developers a clear vision of what the client wants, which makes it easier to create a product that meets those expectations.
In addition, high-fidelity designs can help to speed up the development process by reducing the need for revisions and feedback loops.
At this phase, a client or the main stakeholder should have already approved copy and final assets. That means that there should be fewer surprises during development.
