If you want to lay it out, use something like Balsamiq first. Just wireframe it. You’ll be surprised how much better your last version is than your first version. Once you’re done, you can try to make a nice version in Figma. And then do the hard part and do the actual programming. Source: 3 months ago
> I still don't get this. Isn't it just using a different style of outline around buttons? What is lo-fi about it? Wouldn't lo-fi be something that was much lower memory and much faster to draw, like solid color boxes? Low-fidelity is jargon. It's a word used in the UX Design community for high level, low detail design artifacts. Perhaps you are thinking of low-fi audio and try to match that to wire-frames.... - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
...to the point that (great) UX and wireframing tools like Balsamiq look crappy _on purpose_: https://balsamiq.com/wireframes/ Which all kinda makes sense, with the intuitive reasoning being: If you had time and money to sink into a pixel-perfect design, you're already one step beyond product-market fit, so creating a too good impression might not work in your favor. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
Sounds like Photoshop is the wrong tool. For the wireframe stage, I'd go for something simple like Balsamiq. Otherwise, Adobe offers AdobeXD specifically for such mockups. I have quite a few friends who specialize in UX, and almost all of them live by Figma. Good luck! Source: about 1 year ago
Looks more like wireframism to me - for example https://balsamiq.com/wireframes/. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
I think it's a hugely overlooked market. Look at the sales numbers from Balsamiq for example: https://balsamiq.com/wireframes/#customers Personally there are loads of desktop apps I want, maybe after getting Beekeeper Studio profitable I'll make some more :-). - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
I think "we should start with the end in mind". Could you draw up using a tool like https://balsamiq.com/wireframes/ a wireframe of what the user of the system would see and then we can work from a "user story" back to entity diagram with a tool like https://dbdiagram.io/.
