Awesome Prototyping Tool!

October 25th, 2010 No comments

Check out this AWESOME free prototyping tool. Pencil Project.  (It’s a Firefox Plugin / XUL Application)

It let’s you mock up fully functional websites without writing any html code.  Then, you can export it as html, and use it as a starting point for a better mockup.  Or export all the pages to png’s in one shot, and use those as a starting point in Adobe Illustrator, or your design tool of choice.

It’s great for useability testing.  Mockup your ideas.  Put them in front of customers / users, re-prototype, and continue until you get it as good as possible, and meeting your cash cow customers’ needs.  THEN make it look good.
