DENIM is a system that helps web site designers in the early stages of design. DENIM supports sketching input and gestures for operations like pan, cut, copy, and paste; allows design at different refinement levels--site map, storyboard, and individual page; and unifies the levels through zooming. DENIM uses very little sketch recognition, and when recognition is used, the sketched ink is almost always unchanged. We chose this informal interaction so that designers could concentrate on designing web sites without being distracted by recognition technology.
