For a small team/studio of only few members, under the condition of urgent time, documents or something similar must be economized wherever possible. However, two of them can not be ignored absolutely, also we should try our best to do them well and keep them updated. The two documents are: one is database models made by Power Designer (or the more advanced domain model), the other one is the wireframe.

At the early stage of development, design or creation, you can draw the basic sketch on paper or a whiteboard, to help complete some concept of user interface and task work-flow. These types of wireframe can well satisfy the small projects, so that you can directly enter the stage of development. However, for most of projects, we must get the help of some design software such as Adobe Illustrator, Visio or OmniGraffle. Among the software used for making UI prototype, my favorite is Balsamiq Wireframes (formerly called Mockups Air, Balsamiq Mockups, Balsamiq for Desktop, full name: Balsamiq Wireframes for Desktop, Balsamiq for short), a hand-drawn style and lightweight one. The reasons I like it are as follows:

  • Fast – it can make me draw the UI prototype with the fastest speed
  • Hand-painted style – the UI model drawn with it has the real hand-painted style, that’s very cool
  • All are ready-made – it has built in many frequently-used controls and icons, which are basically enough

Of course, in order to make an excellent wireframe or webpage draft, we can also consider to make a choice from the following nine outstanding tools to help you create web pages, wireframe, sketch and many other design works:
