A new product from two students at The School of Visual Arts’ MFA Interaction Design program. Sticky Jots are pre-printed sticky notes that facilitate sketching and brainstorming for digital products. There are versions for user stories, for phone apps and tablet apps — and there are even clipboard-like device mockups of the iPhone and iPad that the stickies fit into, for more convincing presentation of your ideas. Sticky Jots come in several different combos, and they’re already sold out of their initial run, but you can pre-order the next run.
As a side note, the app POP — which stands for Prototype on Paper — lets you snap pictures of your sketches and make them interactive easily. More here.+
