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.
