Why paper is always best

Great article by James Downes of Box UK on how using sketchbooks to plan and design concepts for user interfaces shoud be encouraged. Here’s the article > http://ht.ly/2AEgr

A few of us in the office have started using paper again recently for site mapping and concepts – I use a great big pad of paper and find doing several medium sized thumbnail wireframes helps get ideas out quickly. I find by using my desktop I fall into old habits and fall back on familiar templates – paper brings out more creative approaches.

I also find sticking concepts on the wall is great for collaboration, as well as focusing the mind when you are deep in project world.
