UX People Widget Library for Axure

Thanks to the lovely Peter Morville and Jeff Callender, the UX People stencils (from the butterfly book), are now available as an Axure Widget Library. Now you have everything you need to incorporate better, more humanized flow diagrams into your prototypes:

Jeff was nice enough to send me the source images so I created the widget library for us dynamic prototyping fans. You can still download the original OmniGraffle stencils.

To use it, download the UX People Widget Library for Axure file (3.2 MB), run Axure RP, then, on the Widget pane (located on the left side of the screen) click “Load Library….”. Locate the file you just downloaded (UX People.rplib). The library should load up and look something like this:

Just drag any UX person into your prototype and you’re done. You can resize as needed. If you use it, please leave a comment and let me know!

    this stencil set is great. Do you plan to make it available in PDF format as well? Otherwise Windows users (without Axure) can’t use this set for prototyping digitally or on paper.

    I love it. Thanks very much for sharing, Livia! (Hat tip to Peter Morville and Jeff Callender, too!)

    No plans to make a vectorized PDF version at this time.

    PS: Axure is not a Mac only application. Windows users can use it too.

    Fantastic, thanks for sharing. And thanks for the RSW flow – it is the funniest thing I’ve seen this week!

    Brilliant. Thanks so much. This has softened up my user-flows and made them much more personable. Can’t thank you enough.

    Bryan, please give it another go. Nobody has had problems downloading so far; I just checked and it worked for me. Let me know if the problem persists. Thanks!

    I downloaded it again, and extracted it. There is no rplib file. It has “” and “document.settings” files and folders (AnnotationFieldSet, CsvAnnotationReportGeneratorConfiguration, DesignDocument, GlobalVariableSet, HtmlPrototypeGeneratorConfiguration, Page, StyleSheet, Word2007SpecificationGeneratorConfiguration). I have other rplib libraries that I have loaded in the past.

    Ok I got it to work. My system (Win 7) was downloading it as a commpressed file (zip). I renamed as a rplib file type and it loaded just fine. Thank you

    Great! I’m glad to hear it. And thank you for describing the solution. If anyone else encounters this problem now we know how to solve it :)

    Thank you for the stencils, having people icons helps with my non tech customers understanding flow chart diagrams.

    I’ve downloaded the file from the link that’s provided. However, I can’t seem to find the UXPeople.rplib file. There are several folders within the zipfile. Is there a particular place I should look.

    Hey Stanley, let me know what kind are you trying to download and which software and operating system you are going to use it with and I’ll help troubleshoot.

    Hi Livia,
    I’m currently using Axure RP 6.0. My operating systems is Windows XP Version 2002. I download the information per the instruction but I was unable to find the UX People. rplib file. Thanks so much for your help.

    Am I missing something? I could not find a .rplib file in the zip.

    Working on a PC, maybe this is a mac thing.
