Smashing Magazine, a great resource for designers, published an interesting article about services that solve for prototyping and wireframing. Both are elements within my process that feel clunky. I’m hopeful that in the future Adobe Muse may ease some of the frustration I encounter. But, I’m not sure if I’m going to take the dive with Adobe’s new Creative Cloud vs. updating my Creative Suite. That’s another post for another day.

My preferred process now is UX sketching.

I’ve found this works well for client presentations and quickly uncovering visual solves for composition and hierarchy on websites. My favorite thing about the UX sketch is it looks like it’s a part of the creative process. It’s better than boxes and squares on a page – which most clients don’t understand anyway.
