“We feel that people get their best ideas at the most random places,” explained Ricky Navarro of Pocket Wires. “So we decided to make a book for designers to sketch their iPhone app ideas.”
The result is the Pocket Wireframe book from Pocket Wires, a little notebook intended to help app designers place their ideas into context right away. Ricky Navarro and Tom Gurka are the duo behind the project.
The interior pages of the Pocket Wireframe book feature an iPhone 4s template, complete with hash marks to show the location of the status bar,and top and bottom navigation, in both landscape and portrait orientation. This way, application designers can see what their designs look like at actual size.
The inner cover features a key to guide new app designers through the layout of the phone screen.
Pocket Wires took a series of fun photographs featuring their books in use in those “random places” that Ricky mentioned: at the bus stop, at the coffee shop, on the sidewalk…the perfect pocket size of the Scout Book enables you to keep it with you at all times—because you never know when inspiration will strike.
The Pocket Wireframe notebooks are available on the Pocket Wires website for $5 each or $12 for a three-pack. The books are available in bulk quantities at wholesale pricing, so if your entire office needs a pocket-sized wireframe notebook, give these guys a call. Pocket Wires is aiming to get them into art school bookstores and art supply stores in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled.
Thank you to Pocket Wires for the photographs!
