What tools are you using when creating a great user experience for mobile apps or websites?

I don't mean Mac/PC software like Axure or Balsamiq. I mean paper/pen tools. Do you use papers with mobile pattern or columns? Markers, crayons, sticky notes, Moleskine sketch, etc?

    This isn't a solvable UX question with a correct answer, it's a poll / survey and as such doesn't fit with a Question and Answer website I'm afraid. You can try asking in User Experience Chat but it's not a suitable question for the main site. – JonW Jan 9 '14 at 8:48

Paper, pencil and ruler are good to go as they are time & cost effective.


Paper and pen, colorizers, please some print outs of UX components. The print outs (for instance from Balsamiq) make it easier to ensure correct proportions.
