It’s Coming…

Yes, 20-16 is coming. Its almost at our door steps now. Its time say goodbye to 2015 and embrace the new year. Its also time to party for all the good things achieved in this year. I am filled with nostalgia for everything 2015 gave me. But keep in our memories.

For me personally, just want to show my gratitude to 2015 for everything I achieved. It was the year of learning. Many lessons were learnt, on personal and professional fronts.

So, wish you all a very happy new year!

Keep learning, keep running, stay fit, healthy and make new friends!

Cheers!!

16 Design Tools for Prototyping and Wireframing

In recent years the number of tools available to help you document and design your web site has just exploded. It seems that we all need a wireframing or prototyping tool at our fingertips (at least in the design arena). So in order to save you the hard work required to find one, I’ve assembled this list. It can be expanded upon, so if you use an unlisted application, please let me know and I’ll add it to the list.

Within these two groups I’ve found that usefulness can vary markedly among tools; some are only suitable for diagramming and wireframing, while others focus only on prototyping. The best are blessed with both capabilities and more. Continue reading
