iphone stencil

One of my new years resolutions is to use a paper and pencil more when designing, I often dive straight into Photoshop, which is great for the environment but is not always a good idea for a creative.

With the iPhone firmly rooted within mobile marketing strategies, more and more people are requesting iPhone apps and websites, so it makes sense to get more familiar with standard UI elements.

Check out this great iPhone metal stencil and notepad from uistencils.com. The stencil only costs $17.95 with the iPhone shaped notepad at $7.95.
