Design terms can seem like jargon to non-designers, which can lead to miscommunication. This resource helps clarify the meanings of common design terms through definitions and examples.

"A prototype is a model or artifact built to test a concept with users in order to learn from them. A prototype helps designers understand, explore, and communicate what it feels like to engage with a solution in real working conditions rather than theoretical conditions. Prototypes can be used to test and refine concepts across many different aspects of a health intervention including products, services, benefit statements, messaging, training, and decision support tools"
Design is a craft and discipline that applies a specific mindset and skillset to a creative problem solving process, enabling the development of informed, sensitive, inclusive, purposeful, appealing, and innovative solutions.

Which of the profiles do you fit into?
