Hi! My name is Leon Barnard. I am a designer and writer at Balsamiq. Balsamiq is the maker of Mockups, the rapid 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. Mockups look like sketches, so stakeholders won't get distracted by little details, and can focus on what's important instead.

I create documentation and tutorials to help our users become more proficient with our products. I am a long-time Balsamiq user and have been in the field of User Experience for over 10 years.

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'm excited to teach you how to use our little but powerful tool!
