I work in design and regularly use "mockups". These are templates that let me see what my design will look like.

I know that "mockup" is widely accepted as a noun, but what is the correct verb from these options for a heading:

  1. Mockup Your Designs Using Our Mockups
  2. Mock-up Your Designs Using Our Mockups
  3. Mock-Up Your Designs Using Our Mockups (capitalized U)

    It's mock up. Two words. Otherwise, you find yourself saying I mockupped my design, which sounds horrendous. Oct 20, 2022 at 18:20

    To continue Peter Shor's point, you could draw an analogy to (probably) more obviously incorrect forms like: I lookupped the word, the traffic buildupped behind the crash, cowboys roundupped the cattle, we setupped the presentation

    Hyphens are not pronounced, so it doesn't matter how you spell it Oct 20, 2022 at 21:20
