  1. Great post on Designer’s Toolkit, especially the results for wireframing tools. I had been using Balsamiq, but didn’t care for it at all. Right now I am using Protoshare because one of my clients turned me on to it. It’s not the most user friendly application out there, but it’s got better features than Balsamiq.

    Your blog is the best link I’ve found this week, but here’s a recent news article on Apple’s superstar design chief, Jonathan Ive from BBC News:

    Happy New Year. Alison, I love your blog!


  2. Thank you! The blog is really the brainchild of Rose, though. And thanks for sharing the great link. Happy New Year to you as well Joanne! 🙂
