What Is Axure?
Axure is software available for Windows and Macs that allows people who work in UX (user experience), interaction design, development, design, or product management to create flow charts, wireframes, and interactive clickable prototypes. Axure's main competitors are Omnigraffle and Visio for wireframing and JustInMind, UXPin, Invision, and roughly 40 other software applications for prototyping.
Axure easily handles low, medium, and high fidelity wireframes and prototypes. It can also handle data sets, variables, listeners, mobile interactions, and a seemingly endless heap of great features. Clickable interactive prototypes that work on desktop and/or mobile are great for socialising, user testing, and documentation.
Whether you need to show a quick mockup or reproduce a polished product, Axure is a great tool to know well. Many UX employers are starting to look for Axure on resumes! With a great coach (that's me!) and some Axure training, you can expand your skill set.

Debbie Levitt, CEO of Ptype UX & Product Design Agency, has been a UX strategist, designer, and trainer since the 1990s. As a “serial contractor” who lived in the Bay Area for most of this decade, Debbie has influenced interfaces at Sony, Wells Fargo, Constant Contact, Macys.com, Oracle, and a variety of Silicon Valley startups. Clients have given her the nickname, “Mary Poppins,” because she flies in, improves everything she can, sings a few songs, and flies away to her next adventure.
Debbie is a speaker and trainer who has presented at conferences including eBay’s Developer Conference, PayPal’s Developer Conference, UXPA, and WeAreDevelopers. She is an O’Reilly published author and one of few instructors on the planet recommended by Axure. Her newest training program is DevOps ICU, which teaches non-UX roles how to measurably improve DevOps results by correctly integrating UX practitioners and processes.
Outside of UX work, and sometimes during UX work, Debbie enjoys singing symphonic prog goth metal, opera, and New Wave. She’s now a Digital Nomad splitting her time between the USA and rural Italy.
