Wiring up with Balsamiq

Balsamiq is being used by 2 or 3 departments. This is helping product developers, engineers, and application designers see a basic idea and allows for them to be on the same page. It helps engineering, especially, because it is quicker than a full mockup and allows for quick turnaround with feedback allowing for bigger changes to occur early and often, rather then being locked into a design and wasting time trying to change it.
  • Quick to make changes
  • Easy to use and understand what you need
  • There are wireframes objects for almost any type of UI imaginable
  • More icons selection
  • Not having to store and keep assets with the wireframe
  • Easier to share and collaborate at the same time
If you're looking for a final mockup, Basamiq will not look as pretty as Photoshop. For displaying a basic concept or idea it is perfect. Now if only I could do full use cases in one smooth motion it would be perfect.

Balsamiq is used by me, the Web Dev, in the IT department of our institution. I use it to design mockups of our external and internal websites during the review and approval process, after which I develop the sites. Balsamiq mockups has saved me a huge amount of time and effort.
  • The buttons and objects are intuitive.
  • Flexible, easy, and quick. Low learning curve compared to much pricier mockup software.
  • Highly customizable. Ability to design with a high level of granularity, which is key when dealing with older, less-techy stakeholders.
  • While I understand the comic sans font, I do wish I could use a more professional font because I usually have to explain to stakeholders that they should ignore the font.
  • Stronger right-click context menu functionality would make editing box colors and fonts simpler.
  • Pre-defined responsize-sized templates would be awesome. Just pick a starting screen res and 5 breakpoint templates are displayed...
It's particularly well-suited for small-scale projects, but I don't think it would be any less appropriate for large scale projects. I work in a hybrid museum/library/gallery with many stakeholders of varying expertise and Balsamiq has made it easy for me to provide examples to all of them with little fuss.
