    Pros: 

    Clean and simple UI, saves a lot of time

    Cons: 

    Would like to have a greater choice of blocks but I think they'll do that

    I have been testing alpha version of Draftium before the launch and must admit it has greatly simplified my work. So when I need to create a landing page, I make a quick wireframe (with copy) in Draftium and pass it on to UX designers. They already see what I want to get as a result and so we spend less time on numerous iterations.

    Pros: 

    Clean interface, fast workflow.

    Cons: 

    (None)

    I have yet to use it, but from the video alone, it looks like something to further speed our process.

    Update: Loving this product. The makers are checking all the right boxes and what I love about it beyond the relatively generous free tier as well as the package this fits into, is the overall intent behind it. To cite a comment I made: "Absolutley love the motivation behind this: the combination of simplicity, speed and frictionless workflow paired with tasteful results," it just makes for an awesome combination not to be missed.

Hello, PH world. We've done 500+ websites for our customers during the last 6 months and realized that the main challenge is not to develop the website for a customer but to collect the content and synchronize the vision together. We started to look at many prototyping tools and found that all of them operate with elements and it takes hours and hours to complete the prototype for a client - it doesn't work us internally. So we've had to build our own turbo solution. This is how Draftium was born. Now, we've decided to release it as a free tool for other developers, studios and marketers to improve their process internally and externally. We see the future of the tool as one single place for ideating with the customer and collecting all digital assets from him and the feedback too. Hope you guys will enjoy the product and provide a valuable feedback. All ProductHunters get 75% off the Pro plan with promo code: PRODUCTHUNTER

@david_braun Firstly, I love the tool. Working with it, I didn't find an option to put a looping background video (typically home/landing page); and then to overlay words on top of that video. The Calls to Action are all 2-step processes: that is, the user enters hir name and phone; User requests a demo and gets a thank you. ......... So, what about an option that allows for a series of questions, each connecting to the next, with a progress bar at the top? The maker/customer decides how long the series should be and has an END/Thank you option to end the series. Allowing for an image to be uploaded into the footer would also be useful. So, I sound like I'm at a smorgasbord! sorry. .... But, it's in Beta ... so I thought I'd add my 2cents worth 😉

People ask me on Fb is this a tool for lo-fi or hi-fi prototypes? The truth is: you can make both on Draftium. Create a draft structure from simple blocks in a few minutes and you are done with lo-fi mockup to discuss the concept. Add real texts, images, interactions and animations and it will be hard to tell whether it's a prototype or a live website. See examples below: Lo-fi: http://usejoylofi.draftium.site/ Hi-fi: https://usejoy.draftium.site/

@eugene_polev So, there are issues/bugs ... been using product all week as a vision communication tool. 1)Sometimes "preview" and "comment" show the mockup; sometimes they don't. .... 2)Sometimes an element saves to the intended page AND saves to other UNintended pages at the same time, creating some confusion. 3)Sometimes people using the link to a prototype get really weird unintended effects in their version, like element duplications sitting on top of each other, creating a "double-vision" effect; or complete unintended repetitions of elements one after the other. So this is a great product and absolutely useful. BUT please work on these issues or it will defeat the purpose as a team-collaboration/visioning tool.

Finally someone thought of prototyping tool for complete non-designers like me. Thanks guys!! What features does Pro plan has? Is the free plan limited in terms of projects or time?

@eugine_dychko I’ve got your pain. 😉 When our team shared Draftium concept, my thoughts were the same. Because I’d tired to draw the moqups for designers on paper or in Power Point. You can use Draftium for free and you are able here to create up to 3 prototypes and use free library of ready-made templates. You can work with free plan forever if you feel that those options are enough for you. Pro plan allows you to create unlimited amount of prototypes and use extended library of templates (there are more than 300 up to date), removes branding, and provides you with priority support. BTW: Check David’s message above - today for PH community PRO acc is super available :)

A great tool to sync your vision with the entire team. Takes literally minutes to create a prototype. Also loved the collaboration feature - reminded me of Pro products like Sketch and InVision, but in this case for free.

@andrew_alexeyenko thanks a lot. The main difference is - we operate with ready-made customizable blocks and it speeds the process up to 5 times. Although you loose the flexibility a bit.
