Storyboard Notepad & Wireframe Graph Paper Notepad

Notepads

Michael Angeles, the mastermind behind konigi, pointed me to his ingenious two products for designers like:

The Storyboard Notepad is made for creatives who think about interactions over time, whether doing user interface or interaction design or planning video, film, and animation sequences. The notepad has 50 sheets at 8 1/2×11 inches on white 70# paper, glued on the left side. The ink is a non-photo blue (cyan) so that the grid lines and any sketch lines made in non-photo blue pencil can be knocked out when scanned and processed in graphics software.

The Wireframe Graph Paper Notepad is made for visual designers, interaction designers, and information architects designing for the screen. The notepad has 50 sheets at 8 1/2 x 11 inches on white 70# paper, glued on the left side. The ink is a non-photo blue (cyan) so that the grid lines and any sketch lines made in non-photo blue pencil can be knocked out when scanned and processed in graphics software.

Absolutely briliant! Can’t wait to use these for my next project!

  1. awesome, just made some orders!
    thanks

    play/on

  2. this is great! how many times we create littles boxes and try to explain our ideas…

  3. These are cool. I wonder how these would work for someone in my industry (kitchen and remodel design)?

  4. Tina, thanks so much for the link up!

    @jbm: I’d be interested in hearing what types of needs you have for your type of design. I’m a craftster and have spoken with other craftsters about the types uses they have for graph paper, and have been working on a different design that is a bit more flexible. If you’re interested, tell me more about your needs at http://konigi.com/contact

  5. hey, all you guys bought the second one… and now they’re out of stock!

  6. @jbm: As an AutoCad 2005 user, the storyboard style graph paper reminds me of the different views you could create of an object or room, side by side.
    As you go to the homes you could use each cell per se, for each wall or angle you need to take measurements for.
    You could use a cell to display a door front next to the area you will change.

    Make a suggestion for a different use for the area that the costumer wants and show it side by side. This graph paper would be handy for the measurements you would take for the design phase on the computer. Hand draw, the prep with the measurements, to speed the designing on the computer program of choice.

    These are just a few suggestions that came to my mind when I looked at the storyboard graph paper.

  7. these could be a great gift…the MYSELF!
    thanks for the link – bookmarked.
