No More Boxes – Designing UI/UX in Real- Life

Lauren Zeien

Spending hours and hours creating boxes, circles, and rectangles all to show exactly how an app will look and feel is frustrating and confusing. But those days are over. The team behind Velocis has released UI Magnets.

UI Magnets are an innovative way of capturing your app design ideas and working through the early ideation process.

Velocis Creative Director Ray Hernandez credits the product creation due to years of design development with clients.

“We created UI Magnets because we wanted a better way of white-boarding our app ideas. We're constantly working through ideas with clients or on our own apps and we got really tired of drawing rectangles to represent mobile devices and browsers. Now we just throw a UI Magnet up on any surface and get to work with a beautiful, to-scale template.”

While the primary goal is to help software development agencies and creative designers the team notes that anyone can use them to sketch out the next “it” app before turning to developers.

“Rapidly iterating in meetings is a crucial step toward building stakeholder consensus. UI Magnets help us design in the open and build rewarding interfaces that delight our users!” says Andrew Zusman, a UX designer in Dallas.

The magnets are whiteboard and available in both magnetic & vinyl formats now allowing users to stick them anywhere.
