GUI Design Studio 4.0 Released With New Interaction and Templates

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

New Version 4.0GUI Design Studio version 4.0 is now available and includes some fantastic new features in two editions, both with a 30-day trial.

The new features are grouped around interactivity and element and design sharing. They enable you to build more realistic and interactive prototypes and to share or reuse individual elements or whole design templates with ease.

New editions

GUI Design Studio is now available in two different editions.

GUI Design Studio Express provides the prototyping functionality that was in v3, but focussed on individuals without the need to share projects and generate specification documentation.

GUI Design Studio Professional builds on v3, adding new interactivity and design sharing features, and is better suited to those working on larger projects, in teams, or on multiple designs.

All projects created in one edition will run in the other, or in the free viewer, except that the enhanced interactivity features in the Professional edition (see below) are not available in the Express edition. You can compare the two editions here.

Prototypes get more interactive (Pro edition only)

As your user interface design develops, everyone involved starts to focus on the details of interactivity. What process does the user need to go through to achieve certain tasks, how many button presses, how much navigation, is it clear and obvious, can they make simple mistakes?

All of these questions, and more, need to be considered in developing and refining a good UI and they cannot be addressed easily in a simple mock-up.

Easier GUI Design Distributions Are On Their Way

Friday, May 26th, 2006

If you’re working within a team of designers then you’ll appreciate the way that GUI Design Studio stores designs in separate files so that you can all work on parts of the same project at the same time.

But when you want to send your whole GUI design project to someone for review then you have to make sure they have all the files they need. If they’re all within the project then it’s easy enough to zip up the project folder to send them but if you’ve linked to images randomly scattered on your hard disk then it becomes more of a problem.

That’s about to change with version 2.1 being released very soon. (more…)
