    I'll take a look at that and possibly update it too. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hey Bevan. I definitely see your point, and I completely agree. This is really for when you've got to mock something up really quickly.

    For example, quick design sprint exercises, hack days, very low fidelity conceptual flows/mocks.

    I actually didn't think about using it for UI loading states. Great idea!

    Flow should be used to style placeholder content. Here's a quick gif:

    Hey everyone, I'm Dan.

    I'm a designer from Australia, now living in Canada. Design tools are my passion, and I wanted to share my latest project with you.

    Flow is a typeface built for wireframing. The font comes in three weights – circular, rounded and block. It’s a little project I’ve been working on, and I'd love for you to take a look.

    Designing with real content is important, but sometimes we need something more abstract. Flow aims to provide an efficient and flexible way to create abstracted/placeholder content in your designs.

    It's a little costly, but Screenflow is great for just about anything I've needed it for. You can simultaneously record your screen, camera, audio (input and output).

    I love Zeplin. I've integrated it into the company iOS/Android workflow.

    It's great when you create custom UI's, because it automatically converts px to dp/sp for Android. It automatically gives you correct @1x point sizes for iOS development even if you've designed in @2x/@3x (not that I'm designing at @3x).

    It's also great for extracting colours. I'd love to be able to extract assets (I think this may be a future feature).

    It's just a huge time saver for us - no more creation of specification/measurement documents. Our developers can just go into zeplin, click what they want to measure and go.

    Great work guys!

    Completely agree with Alec. Good work man. At least when you're learning to use JS, we get some entertainment out of it!

    Looking forward to see how this turns out. Especially in terms of whether it really would save time creating a quick wireframe.

    I'm hoping it feels really intuitive so that I don't have the feeling of wanting to go back to a real computer. I always find this is the case with iPad apps like Photoshop Mix.
