Better Defaults for Axure, a Widget Library
About a month ago, the folks at Zurb published a nice article about sketching wireframes. I went ahead and purchased some new sketching items including a nice thick sharpie and a cool gray “dropshadow” pen.
The difference in my sketches is incredible. Zurb hits the nail on the head, saying, “Although we advocate keeping things as simple as possible, presentation is everything.” I wholeheartedly agree. While it’s important to stay in a sketchy, mostly grayscale environment while doing early prototyping, there is nothing wrong with keeping your deliverables professional looking.
In that sense, and through deep offense at the default White, Black, and Blue widgets offered with Axure, I’ve created a small library of widgets that are just a little more aesthetic.
This is for version 5.5 and above. Put the file in your “My Documents\My Axure RP Libraries\” folder.
