Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Paper prototype materials, part of UX Foundations: Prototyping (2013).
All you really need to create a paper prototype, is…just a pen or pencil and a piece of paper.…However, you can built more effective paper prototypes, by…just adding a few more materials to the process.…In this movie, I want to show you some of my favorite paper prototyping supplies.…Now it all starts with the paper.…And, you could certainly use just your regular laser paper but,…I like using a thicker card stock for my paper prototypes.…It's a little bit…more durable, and it's going to be better for you…in the long run if you're using multiple testing sessions.…
You also want to get some tracing paper.…Now, you can get a pad of tracing paper like…this, or you can buy some of the thicker velum sheets.…That you can actually put through copiers if…you're printing some of your UI elements out.…They're very handing for doing pop-up windows, modal windows, and overlays.…Now, if you're doing larger paper prototypes, you…can typically find pads like this, that are larger…mixed-media pads that still have a very thick weight to them.…
