A Brief Tutorial
By Philip Luedke
An Informal Tool For
Early Stage Web Site and UI Design
DENIM is an informal pen-based system that helps web site designers in the early stages of design. Using DENIM, designers can quickly sketch web pages, create links among them, and interact with them in a run mode.
Denim was developed by a group of people that conducted a study of web site designers and the practices they use. They found that designers conceptualize and plan sites at different levels of construction. They found that designers sketch at all levels during the early stages of design. They developed DENIM to aide in this process.
