Balsamiq… The art of software

Despite the infinite plethora of software and productivity and tools that have been around for years, most hailed by their users, many condemned for being utterly useless.

Every once in a while I stumble upon a gem, a singular piece of software or productivity tool that compels me with teary eyes to exclaim with sheer joy and awe (ok the tears part is an exaggeration).

The ability of providing quick intuitive diagrams and mock ups in software development is of paramount importance and using generic graphic software like photoshop is an overkill.

Enter Balsamiq… an amazing tool for impressive mock up design. It allows me to produce almost effortlessly intuitive diagrams such as this architectural diagram I was tasked with producing.


I love the artistic style of the graphics and font sets. In short this is a darn cool piece of software. If only more such beautiful tools exist.
