Wireframing

Wireframing is the process of generating a hand or otherwise drawn, non-artistic representation of page layout and location of functional user operations therein. Wireframes can be drawn on paper, on a white-board, or electronically generated by commercially available software programs.

Regardless as to how you make a wireframe, it should highlight the functions of each page element, such as lists, buttons, and dropdown boxes. The way these page elements relate and interact with one another is also established. The functions from the User Requirements are listed next to the associated page element.

In short, a wireframe is a visual guide, page schematic or screen blueprint which can help you see what is on a page and how the elements work together.

Wireframing Answers Questions

Wireframes exist to answer the question “What elements do I want to see on each page, and how should they be laid out?”

The layout of a page is the primary method of communicating to the viewer how things shown on the page are related to each other in practice. If a phone number is next to a contact name, they are probably related. If things on a page are contrasted, you are communicating to your users that they are different. Items within a dropdown bos indicate subsections which are distinct but also related to one another.

Wireframes must exist, minimally, before an application can be accurately quoted for construction.

Once you have created an acceptable wireframe, then it is time to consider typographic styles, color scheme, and graphics. The “look” which you wish to acquire is established in the next step with Design.
