What’s shiny, polished, iPhone-like but a fraction of the price of an iPhone?
No, it’s not another cheap iPod Touch knockoff, but this really nifty iPhone Stencil Kit from Design Commission.
iPhone interface design is über-cool at the moment, as is hand sketching your UI mockups, and this little tool lets you tick both those boxes at the same time. Everything is scaled up by about a third to make it easier to work with and includes a variety of generic iPhone UI elements including media controls, browser widgets, buttons, sliders and more.
Even if you don’t happen to be commonly designing for iPhone, I could see this item looking pretty tasty next to a brushed aluminum MacBook as a piece of quality desk ephemera. And don’t we all need more of that?
Cheers Wendy for the heads-up.
