1 - The overlooked part of UI-design

Getting to a breakthrough UI takes many iterations.
It's smart to go through these phases early on, when changes don't cost as much.
Unfortunately there haven't been tools to help you do this!

2 - The right tools weren't there yet

- Paper prototyping is to test the interface once it is made and doesn't give a clean overview of your design while making it.
- Design programs make great finals, but they prove to be too rigid to quickly change around and compare during the thinking process.
- Sketches work, but are very loose. A redraw is needed for every change.

3 - GuiMags boosts the thinking process

GuiMags boosts designing individually as well as designing with a group.
With remarkably simple interface magnets, you draw, wipe, change, compare and critique.
You can even show clients what their changes imply. Right away!

4 - Easy write-on wipe-off

GuiMags are specially designed for easy write-on, wipe-off.
Its smooth specially coated surface helps you design faster and apply changes in a heartbeat.

Designing as a team can be enjoyable again!

Creating interfaces together wasn’t always fun, simply because the right tools weren't there yet.

Software Prototyping:
Yes, projectors are great, but computers don’t allow for smooth collaboration. Usually one person ‘owns’ the keyboard, meaning his ideas get more exposure. GuiMags free you up from this ‘take-your-turn’ type of computer design, allowing everyone to participate.

Sketching:
Sketching by yourself is fun, but sketches or computer-prints don’t work too well if a client wants to change things on the fly. With GuiMags you can quickly recreate a screen to see if that’s what the client wants.

How were they invented?

Our lead designer wanted to find a way to keep coming up with great interfaces after Carpal Tunnel entered his arms uninvited. As he pondered a design at home, he used refrigerator magnets as imaginary interface controls, since drawing and clicking was too painful. A journey of ideas and tests later resulted in the birth of GuiMags, which turned out to speed up our design process by 80% as a bonus!
