Sketchbooks for web designers.

    Before i start working on a new project i usually sketch everything out before i begin. I use a regular sketchbook that is specifically made for drawing. But it’s annoying not being able to draw perfectly strait lines and such, even with a ruler. So i’m wondering if anyone knows any excellent sketchbooks that are specifically made for Web Designers/UI Designers. I used Google and found a few interesting sketchbooks but nothing that i would pay for. So i’m asking if anyone knows any amazing sketchbooks that are used for designing UI/web pages.

    I’m not sure of any but I always used “dot grid” books. Also, how can you not draw straight lines with a ruler?

    Yeah, I use dot grid books too. I’m a big fan of this:

    But a cheaper version like this would also suffice:

    @chrisburton Lol. The lines come out straight but slanted.

    And i’ll check dot grid out. Thanks

    100% digital tablet for me. The speed in which you can do basic sketching is incredibly fast compared to the sketchbook and it’s much easier if I really get a good set of concepts to start converting it into a more finished product. Nothing beats the tactile though (I’m a pencil artist by hobby), but for work the tablet is the way to go. Plus, those straight lines just glide with the shift key :P
