Stop Wireframing and Start Sketching Your Mockups. - PMG - Advertising Agency
Enter the pen and paper wireframes (or Balsamiq if you are like me and do not carry a pen and paper). It makes thinking of layout very easy

Balsamiq – To blog or not to blog
I must have been hungry because I could only think of salad dressing when I heard “balsamic”. However, it isn’t what I think because I’m sitting in my UX class! And while I cannot make a balsamic chicken dish with it (well I could draw it), this tool “Balsamiq” allows me to get creative.

Balsamiq Mockups is a user interface design tool for creating wireframes or mockups. We can use it to create sketches of our product ideas to share with team members of users before writing any code.

Some of the basic components of Balsamiq include:

Toolbar – The primary control interface for common commands (copy, paste, delete)
Canvas – The grid area where the drawing occurs
UI Library – Controls that can be dragged onto the Canvas at any time.
Navigator – Allows navigation to your other mockups through thumbnail images.
Property Inspector – Allows the configuration of properties and actions specific to each UI Control (colour, size).
Task:

Picking up from the wireframe class the other night, where we did a paper mockup of our medical mobile app, the design process has been moved on to the screen now.

Showing the start screen and the first screen below of the app.

Learning Outcome:

Get the basics
Adding controls
Image paper controls
Completing the mockup
Finishing touches
Result: Liking it! Getting better every class!

(2012) Website Design Case Study Part 2: Design Wireframes
Meanwhile, we got to work on creating the website's wireframes.  We use Balsamiq to design and generate our wireframes. 

****Comic Sans side-note to all the designers reading this post:
If you're a designer out there who's snickering about the usage of Comic Sans in our wireframes… just pipe down. Comic Sans is the only font you can use in Balsamiq wireframes. And no one but us designers ever notice.

Sketching & Prototyping: Tools for Communication – Center Centre cohort 01 – Medium
We used another tool called Balsamiq to help us mockup a desktop version of our site quickly because of its availability of pre-assembled web patterns. It helped in developing a medium fidelity prototype that we could test with users to gather feedback.
By the end of the course, we had a functioning prototype that we developed from simple sketches to interactive prototypes.One of the most important things I learned during this course was the value of sketching at an early stage and how to prototype effectively. If you want to learn more about when to sketch and when to prototype check our other blog post “The Pros and Cons of Sketching & Prototyping at Several Fidelities”.

4 Top Tips for Developing a New Feature - DevOps.com
Since no one wants to read a lot of text (except perhaps the awesome readers of this article), the product manager should prepare mockups. They don’t have to be designed or colorful, but they do need to show the team what the feature looks like in his or her vision. During our grooming sessions, we used Balsamiq, which lets you create screen sketches for how the product is supposed to look, feel and work.
