Don’t be a wimp

In Non-Designer Design Handbook, Robin Williams gives a very valuable advice on design (and life). I quote:

Don’t be a wimp

Don’t be afraid to create your Design (or your Life) with plenty of blank space-it’s rest for the eyes (and the Soul),

Don’t be afraid to be asymmetrical, to uncenter your format – it often makes the effect stronger.

It’s okay to do the unexpected.

Don’t be afraid to make words very large or very small; don’t be afraid to speak loudly or to speak in a whisper. Both can be effective in the right situation.
Don’t be afraid to make your graphics very bold or very minimal, as long
as the result complements or reinforces your design or your attitude.

I highly recommend Keynotopia for designing interface mockups for web and mobile apps

Keynotopia is a user interface design toolkit that enables you to use Apple Keynote or Microsoft PowerPoint to prototype, test and demo your application ideas quickly and cheaply, without doing any design work or writing a single line of code.

It includes thousands of wireframe and high fidelity vector user interface components and royalty free icons for mobile, web and desktop apps, all designed from scratch in Keynote and PowerPoint, and can be edited and customized without needing any design tools.

Keynotopia is used by 40,000 entrepreneurs, designers, and developers in more than 80 countries.
