Crank Storyboard Designer enables user interface (UI) designers to easily prototype the look and feel of a product, and then deploy a production-ready interface directly to the embedded target. Designers maintain full control over the UI and user experience (UX) without having to perform a hand off to an embedded systems engineer for implementation.
Storyboard Designer – Get From Design to Implementation. Fast
Getting a product out to market on time and on budget is no easy feat. Storyboard Designer integrates beautifully into the user interface development life cycle and helps make this a reality by providing a rapid development environment.
User interface design tends to begin in a graphics application, with Adobe Photoshop usually being the defacto choice. A Graphic Designer will start by sketching and refining their ideas in Photoshop.
We wanted to keep the Designer within their comfort zone by allowing them to continue using a graphics application they are very familiar with, but also provide as easy way of enabling the Designer and Systems Engineer to work more closely
Smarter, Collaborative Workflow
What Storyboard Suite brings to the table is its abliity to be used throughout the entire development cycle. PSD files from your design team can be easily imported as a foundation for your application.
System Engineers and Graphic Designers can then work together to add functionality or other image assets to your application. Without the need to compile your application, you can very quickly simulate the application on your desktop to immediately see the changes that were made.
From Functional Prototype to Production
Testing your application prototype on your desktop is simple with the simulator that is built into Storyboard Designer. Because the simulator in Storyboard Designer is the same as the engine used in the production environment, you get an accurate simulation of the final application look and feel.
This provides ease-of-mind during the design and development process that the final application in production will look and behave as expected, creating less churn at the end of the development cycle.
