Best way to commuincate design ideas

Thanks much for our opinion regrading interview questions. It would help all junior designers on the list here.

Thinking about what is the best way to communicate design ideas, I believe its the prototype that would help us to communicate and explore further our design decisions.

At the same time,I also think writting a spec and including images of prototypes in spec would also be a good way.

Which do you vote and what is practised in industries.

Interview Question

Hi all,

I have a question regarding interviews related to Interaction Design position. When you are asked to design or redesign a design problem, obviously there is no ime to do user study. So, how do we have to find the user requiremens for the given problem.

Can we say that for this problem due to less time I would like to do a scenario based design (Incorporating Personas , scenatios) and then comeup with assumptions that will work for my persona. Then say during lack of time reasoning throgh assumptions will help us find the strength and weekness of a product.
