Hi! My name is Leon Barnard. I lead the Education Team at Balsamiq, the company behind Balsamiq Wireframes.

Balsamiq Wireframes is the industry standard low-fidelity wireframing software that combines the comfort and simplicity of paper sketching with the power of a digital tool, so your work is easier to share, modify, and get honest feedback on. Wireframes look like sketches, so stakeholders won't get distracted by little details, and can focus on what's important instead.

I use my 10+ years of experience as a UX designer to teach user interface design basics and wireframing to Balsamiq's audience of mostly non-designers via Balsamiq Wireframing Academy.

We created this course to give our customers a way to learn the basics of our product without investing a lot of time reading through our documentation.

I love helping people and technology get along better, and I'm excited to teach you how to use our little but powerful tool!
