the software. My process almost always involves scanning in hand
sketches. I've even created interactive prototypes in Director with

Have a look at the DENIM project at
This can help in bridging the gap between the hand drawn paper prototypes & system supported output. It supports sketching input, allows design at different refinement levels, and unifies the levels through zooming.
