Keynotopia Wireframing Set: Free Wireframing Templates for Apple Keynote

Lately, Apple Keynote has been gaining popularity among designers as a wireframing and prototyping tool. Features like multiple slide masters, styles, grouping, animation and hyperlinks make it ideal for crafting interactive prototypes and UI narratives. Today’s freebie, Keynotopia, is a free set of interface elements for Keynote that makes it possible for anyone to create these prototypes in minutes. All elements are hand-crafted in Apple Keynote, and organized in nested groups for easier manipulation and customization. The templates can be used in Keynote 09 and 08 and are designed by Amir Khella.

Start with a blank presentation, and create a new slide for each application screen. Then copy/paste elements from the wireframe templates into your slides, and edit their labels, sizes and colors. To save time, group elements together, and use master slides to share common interface and navigation components across multiple screens. Finally, add hyperlinks to enable user interaction, and use slide transitions to create cool interface animations.

Voila! You now have an interactive prototype that you can test with users, share with team members, and present to stakeholders.

You can freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes. The set may not be resold, sublicensed or rented.

Motivation behind the design

Here are some insights from the designer of the set:

“The first time I’ve used Apple Keynote for prototyping, I was helping a friend create a product pitch for his startup idea. He didn’t have design or development skills, and I wanted to show him how he can quickly put together a click-thru demo in less than an hour, using his favorite presentation tool. He was impressed by the outcome, and I was equally impressed by Keynote’s simplicity and efficiency. I never went back to my prototyping tool since.

Keynotopia was created so that anyone with an idea can quickly test its potential, without having to spend time and money on design and development resources. It’s a simple proof that having the right mindset for prototyping is more important than buying expensive tools.

I also wanted to find a way to avoid writing UI specs. Using Keynotopia templates, I created prototypes that I annotated and shared with development teams, and the response was phenomenal! Time was no longer spent reading, staring at screenshots and imagining interactions; developers and testers were actually having fun playing with the prototypes and providing feedback. Design was finally catching up with the lean and agile development process.

I am constantly updating the website with guides, tips, and new prototyping templates.

— Amir

Thank you very much, Amir! We appreciate your efforts.

    Tribbon ‘Layered’ Font – Exclusive Free Download


    By Graham Smith

    In another free font exclusive on Noupe, we present Tribbon, a tasty layered ‘ribbon’ style font created by Dominic Le-Hair. It has taken a few weeks of communications with Dominic to finally arrive with a interesting concept in font design. Tribbon is a working ‘ribbon’ style font, that consists of several layers and is available as a free download below. Tribbon is available in both TTF and OTF font formats.

    Designer’s Profile

    Dominic Le-Hair

    I am a 32 year old Graphic Designer living and working in Peterborough, UK. I left Teesside University in 2001 with a BA Honours in Graphic Design.

    I like to work on personal projects in my spare time as there are less restrictions than with most of the client briefs in my job. I try to be as original as possible with my work and like to occasionally combine hands-on media with digital techniques. I am inspired by designers who experiment with type, such as Craig Ward, Autobahn and Handmade Font.

    How To Use The Font

    The Tribbon font started as an experiment in Illustrator working with a simple custom brush I created. I used Myriad Pro Black as a loose basis for each character. The shadows were then added using a gradient overlay.

    I was contacted by Graham who asked if I would be interested in creating a working font from my original work called Ribbon Alphabet on my Behance portfolio. I knew it would be a challenge to simplify it without losing too much detail. My solution was to break it up into three separate fonts (Tribbon A, Tribbon B and Tribbon C). These can be layered on top of one another to maintain the depth of the original. The fonts can be used this way in Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and QuarkXPress. Tribbon B can also be used on it’s own for a more simplified, 2D version of the original.

    I named the font Tribbon as there are three fonts that resemble ribbons when combined (Tri + Ribbon).

    Downloadify – create downloads on the fly without server interaction

    Downloadify is an interesting solution to offer files as downloads without having to create temporary files and loop through a script that sets a force-download header.

    As shown in the demo page offering a file for download and setting its content is as easy as this:

    JAVASCRIPT:
    1. Downloadify.create('downloadify',{
    2.   filename: function(){
    3.     return document.getElementById('filename').value;
    4.   },
    5.   data: function(){
    6.     return document.getElementById('data').value;
    7.   },
    8.   onComplete: function(){
    9.     alert('Your File Has Been Saved!');
    10.   },
    11.   onCancel: function(){
    12.     alert('You have cancelled the saving of this file.');
    13.   },
    14.   onError: function(){
    15.     alert('You must put something in the File Contents or there will be nothing to save!');
    16.   },
    17.   swf: 'media/downloadify.swf',
    18.   downloadImage: 'images/download.png',
    19.   width: 100,
    20.   height: 30,
    21.   transparent: true,
    22.   append: false
    23. });

    As you can see you have callbacks for all the possibilities and several parameters to style the flash movie overlaying the real "download this" button. The only issue I can see is that it doesn't work by sending the form via keyboard. This needs fixing.

    KnucklePuck Font – Exclusive Vector Font Download


    By Graham Smith

    In this font exclusive, we present KnucklePuck, a modular display font created by Austin Roesberg. In my ongoing search for new fonts, I find myself writing to many font designers to see if they would ‘part’ with their digital creation. Sometimes they don’t answer, sometimes they answer ‘no’, and on occasion a ‘yes’ comes my way.

    KnucklePuck was found on Behance. With no mention of font availability on Austins Behance Profile, I approached Austin to see if he would consider making KnucklePuck available as a download. With a few carefully crafted and well placed words, an email was promptly dispatched. Austin agreed. So here we are, Noupe can present KnucklePuck as an exclusive free font download for your enjoyment. You’ll find the download link in the bottom of this post.

    Austin Roesberg

    I am a 24 year old designer currently living in Brooklyn, NY. A 2007 graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), I specialize in print design but have a background in designing for the web as well. I’m always looking for new methods of design and as well as the time to actually put new ideas into production.

    About the Font

    This font was all about problem solving. I had to find a method to designing a font using only 3 shapes (square, rectangle and quarter circle). I decided to make things a little difficult for myself by restricting the font to 3 rows and 2 columns per letter. The only exceptions to that layout were the I, M and W – for obvious reasons.

    I also wanted to give the font a unique look by keeping something in common with each letter. in this case, most letters have a curved bottom left corner. The only letters that were exempt from this were letters that don’t have feet, such as the C and O.

    The end result was a heavy, bulky font that had a somewhat playful look because of the curved shapes in the letters. It reminded me of a dense rubber hockey puck, so I chose to pay homage to a childhood favorite movie of mine, The Mighty Ducks 2 and named it Knucklepuck.
