Synergistic design solutions using a dry-wipe medium

This blog post is not brought to you by Simply Glass Wipeboards, nor do I receive any form of commission on purchases or compensation for writing it.

So a while back I got tired of throwing away pad after pad of paper drawing mockups and making notes. Iain swung by my desk recently and saw my solution: a desktop glass whiteboard, which he thought might be worth sharing with everyone.

Pictured below is an early design of this blog post I drew up on it. Honest.


It’s been great for to do lists: I can’t remove anything until it’s done, as it’s lost forever. It’s good for rough designs, you can quickly erase and try again – though granted not for a whole application (only being A3 sized). It’s bad for handing over designs to colleagues, as they try to steal it from you.

If of interest, this is it!

P.S. Eliminate all sharpie pens from near your desk if you do go for this.
