The humble wireframe is one of the best ways to save time and money while getting your idea across quickly and without fuss.

I’ve been designing for years, and I still enjoy using pencil and paper to sketch and sculpture my ideas for clients. Using this time-tested low-fi method, I like it because it allows me to help the client design their own user journey in real time. If we happen to take a wrong turn, we just erase things until we get back on track.
However, over the last few years, clients have become more tech-savvy and want something a bit sexier when they put their idea into the world! Bearing this in mind, I’ve been using Adobe Comp, a smart, convenient and designer-friendly app for the Apple iOS. It’s a super-useful wireframing app that’s perfect for designers who want to professionally sketch something up that will be compatible with the professional Adobe suite.

The one thing I’d like to see in the next update would be interactive features that allow me to present to whole user experience and journey.
