Design wireframes and storyboards
following on from various IRC chats I have been doing a bit of tinkering
with Pencil http://pencil.evolus.vn/ a GPL licensed wireframing tool for
prototyping designs. I adapted an export template to generate a nice
branded output, you can grab this here:
and install it from the pencil tools menu.
I also made a base pencil file here
which contains a frame of a TV at 1920x1080 proportions scaled down to
480x270 screen size and on screen is a still from Big Buck Bunny
you can copy this onto new pages and use the templates to slap your own
designs on top for Unity on the Telly
I am not really a UX designer or anything, but I flung together a bit of
a storyboard, more to demo the wireframing template and storyboard
output than anything else really.
The pencil file that produced that output is here:
so there you go, a framework for designing what unity as a media
centre/TV interface might look like. Have a play and it would be great
to see your designs. Give me a shout if you want any help setting up
pencil and the export stuff, or if you need a design hosted (just email
me the .ep file and I will stick it up somewhere)
comments and bug reports on the export template would be great.
