If you are working on a project you probably want to have a quick mock-up so the business can easily understand how a web application will look. Well, Yahoo! has just made it easier to do so with their new Design Stencil Kit.
Stencils kits are available for OmniGraffle, Visio (XML), Adobe Illustrator (PDF and SVG), and Adobe Photoshop (PNG) and cover the following topics:
- Ad Units
- Charts and Tables
- UI Controls
- Form Elements
- Menus and Buttons
- Mobile - General
- Mobile - iPhone
- Navigation and Pagination
- OS Elements
- Placeholder Text
- Screen Resolutions
- Windows and Containers
To use a design stencil, download the stencil kit compatible with your design application, launch your design application, and start adding stencil objects to your projects. Adobe Illustrator, OmniGraffle, and Visio users can ungroup stencil objects to customize and manipulate size, layout, and aesthetics.
