Chapter 5: Hi-Fi Prototyping With Symbols and Repeat Grids
In this chapter, we’ll learn two features that are designed to help you maintain visual consistency (and save you countless hours!) when high-fidelity prototyping. These are – how to create and use symbols, and how to automate the process of adding styles and content to components inside repeat grids.
High-fidelity prototyping is the act of taking a validated and improved low-fidelity mockup and adding visual styles to it — we’ll use symbols and repeat grids to speed up this process. By the end of this chapter we’ll have a fully-styled design, minus some icons (which we’ll tackle in the following chapter).
First, we’ll discuss why maintaining visual consistency is important, and how ...
