As our user base continues to grow, I'm exceedingly curious to see how people use Precursor. Recently we've been using an internal playback tool to learn about this.
Today I'm excited to announce that we're now making this tool accessible to everyone. I've curated the following examples to showcase some of its key uses.
This doc is a unique glimpse at the discipline it takes to be a great designer. Eddie is known for exceptional illustrations, but he saves time here using placeholders, rather than elaborate sketches.
I like this illustration because it reminds me that work should be fun. I also find it interesting how much detail Damir can achieve with each stroke.
This is something I'm seeing more people practice on Precursor—prototypes don't need every detail. Watch Fatih contemplate the value of that avatar, explore the idea, and ultimately remove it.
Without watching Justin build this prototype, it's hard to tell how many iterations he went through. Too many can be just as dangerous as too few, but I think this strikes a good balance.
Before Ken tried drawing any components, he got his content and spacing figured out. Isolating important areas of your ideas is crucial for expressing them quickly.
Peter made short work of this by focusing on his content—great strategy—lining things up afterwards. You may like our new arrows, Peter. Hold ctrl+shift and click shapes to connect them!
Mathieu used duplication to skip over the tedious areas of his idea. He prioritized the unique aspects of his prototype and automated the others.
If you want to make your own replay, like those featured above, just add a parameter to your url, like the example below.
Let us know if you find a doc that won't replay. There may be some missing transactions on older docs, but we can fix it!
To thank them for showing off their work, everyone featured today will receive a free t-shirt displaying their unique designs.
Got something interesting, made with Precursor?
Tweet @PrecursorApp and include #madewithprecursor. I'll send you a one-of-a-kind shirt for free, if we feature it next time!
