    Hey Chris! Awesome article.

    One question only: What methods did you used to convert your user needs into Wireframes/Prototypes?

    You just took the affinity map and developed the prototype or you documented all your tools and functionalities beforehand?

      Hi Rafael, thanks for the comment. Essentially the affinity map gave me an idea of the user needs which I put in a trello log. These needs drove the ideas for the functionality the app needed to have which I explored in the prototype. Hope that helps!
