Streamline Your Design Process: 10 of the Best Web Design Tools for 2017
Balsamiq is the most straightforward wireframing mockup tool, keeping the UI of their software intentionally simple. They consider themselves to be the virtual version of sketching on a whiteboard, calling their no-frills product zen software that has minimum features and helps you achieve the ultra-productive cognitive state known as flow, and stay there.

You can create sketch-like wireframes, drag and drop images, and leave notes alongside your design. This tool doesn’t offer real-time collaboration, but attaches an email list to a project that serves as a “discussion group.” They also allow for a project to have multiple editors.

Wireframing software often comes with a slew of unnecessary features and options that divert your attention from the simple, focused purpose of blueprinting your website. Companies like Apple, Skype, Zappos, and Tesla opt for this simple software over more built-out, robust ones.

Top 10 Stunning Free Wireframe Apps You Must Try in 2017
Balsamiq has been known for its hand-drawn style. If you give it up at the first sight, it’s definitely your loss. Because its style is intentionally made for designers to focus on the project itself. In other words, the basic premise behind Balsamiq is to encourage feedback as much as possible in a low-fidelity world.

Grace on Instagram: “Solving the "which aisle?" question with balsamiq. . Balsamiq is a pretty nice, basic tool I've started learning this week. I like how…”
Balsamiq is a pretty nice, basic tool I've started learning this week. I like how fast designs can be made in comparison to tools like Sketch that give you more autonomy and fidelity.

Design Tools for Data Visualization – Design + Sketch – Medium
Balsamiq is a great tool for non-designers or beginners in design. It’s easy drag-and-drop-components interface lets users create a quick wireframe. Also, you can import images into it. You can use it online or download a desktop app. I personally prefer the desktop app because it also syncs to your online profile if you want to share the mockup.

Reflection – Web Media Production I
I proceeded to create my low-fidelity prototypes using Balsamiq. I found Balsamiq to be a helpful and efficient program because it provided ready-made assets for both web and mobile prototyping. This saved me a lot of time and it gave me a great visual representation of how the web page will appear before fully building its high-fidelity version.

Working with Balsamiq – Gill's Web Experience
This useful tool helped me to visualize my website much better before I do all of the high fidelity mockups.

Balsamiq gave me the opportunity to concentrate on the FUNCTIONALITY and the DIRECTION of my website. I felt as though I was getting a bit lost in Photoshop before, because I was spending too much time worrying about the design. Now I have finally giving thought as to what each page will look like and how it will function – for both web AND mobile.

I feel as though my thoughts are much more organized now, and I am ready to develop more detail and design in Photoshop.

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!
