Ask DN: Typefaces for low-fidelity prototyping?

    Huge fan of sketching an paper--all the stuff we're prototyping now is coming from loose sketch sessions.

    Learning to sketch first was a huge eye-opener for me early on, but as I've gained experience making low-fidelity stuff, I've started doing more wireframing in Sketch. A lot of complicated interactions that worked well on paper didn't really "fit" on a screen, and I tend to set type much larger by hand than digitally. Could do another sketch round with graph/dot paper I suppose, but I'd just as soon pull out my laptop... there's just something about building it at the right scale that helps my layout process.
