What is Framer?

If you already familiar with app design software such as Adobe Xd or Invision Studio for producing interactive screen designs, you’ll probably be pretty much settled with your choice of screen design software.

But hold on, there is another, that I think you’ll really like. And so I’d like to share with you my brief prototyping encounter using Framer. 

In short, Framer X is a prototyping app for quickly producing tangible digital products without having to write production code. [ continue ]

Getting Started with Framer

As much as Framer might be easy to work your way around, the 10 minute introductory tutorial is well worth following for a very quick overview of both how Framer X works, and just some of the things you can do using the software.

It almost seems pointless to say that if your are already familiar with one app design software, then you’ll certainly feel at home with another. After all, let’s face it, most of the leading apps all have some similarity in how they work. And with that we are left with choices that may depend more on other factors besides just how good or simple a piece of software is to use.

The Framer dashboard provides you with 5 main menu tabs, plus other tabs including; Insert, Comment and Handoff…

The Insert menu tab gives you access to an array of options and is likely to become one your most frequently used tab, if of course you decide to adopt Framer into your website design workflow.

a)

screen

b)

frame

c)

text

d)

scroll

e)

page

a) Screen start here with a mobile, tablet or desktop screen
b) Frame use this for most of your items, layouts, buttons etc
c) Text click to add text wherever you want…
d) Scroll easily create scrollable windows
e) Page use the page tool to draw swipe-able areas. Just connect content…

Simple scroll-able content with Framer X​

The Scroll tool is a good example of Framers intuitively simple method for producing workable and demonstrative prototypes.

To use the Scroll tool simply select the icon and draw a square or rectangle where you want your scroll-able content to go.

Then it’s just a simple case of connecting the content you want to make ‘scrollable’.
