  • Computer-aided sketching to capture preliminary design

    Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (IEEE Computer Society Press, 2002)
    This paper describes the vital role of freehand sketching in the design process. When designers first tackle a design problem they usually do so by sketching. We will explore the essential elements of sketching that make ...
  • Freeform: A Tool for Sketching Form Designs

    Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (British HCI Group, 2003)
    This demonstration shows the tool we have developed for hand-sketching user interfaces. Our motivation for developing this tool is to provide an environment where novice programmers can move freely along the design continuum ...
  • FreeForm: An informal environment for interface prototyping

    Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark; Masoodian, Masood (ACM, 2002)
    Best practice in interface design suggests that hand-drawn sketches are preferable at the early stages of the design process. This paper describes the FreeForm software which supports informal sketched interface design by ...
  • INTERACTING with sketched interface designs: an evaluation study

    Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (ACM Press, 2004)
    Digital hand-drawn sketches provide a new and unique way of interacting with a prototype user interface design while it is still rendered as a sketch. The successful use of prototypes and scenarios for exploring design ...
  • Making paperless work

    Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (ACM, 2007)
    Despite well documented advantages, attempts to go truly "paperless" seldom succeed. This is principally because computer-based paperless systems typically do not support all of the affordances of paper, nor the work process ...
