Version 1.4
A free design prototyping toolkit for Quartz Composer.

Most designers today create static mockups to communicate app ideas. But increasingly apps are anything but static, which means as designers we need a better tool for interaction design.

Origami is a free toolkit for Quartz Composer—created by the Facebook Design team—that makes interactive design prototyping easy and doesn’t require programming.

Quartz Composer is a freely-available Mac OS X application by Apple that's been around for nearly a decade. It was never designed for the purpose of interaction prototyping though: it's primarily a motion graphics tool.

Out of the box without Origami, interaction prototyping with Quartz Composer is complicated. Origami provides a set of tools for Quartz Composer that make interaction prototyping a lot easier.
