Wireframes in web design

When you’ve got a big project lined up its important to get the foundations down before you get to excited with jumping into the design or getting it live. You’re faced with a massive process that requires you to get it down as early as you can if you want to stop scope creep or complications later on in the design or the build or even after the site is live. Let’s begin.

Hopefully you’ve had a lot of meetings and guidance from the all they key players in process. There might even be more along the line but the important thing here is to get as much information as you can about the purpose of the site, the audience and who’s signing it off! The third one is probably going to be the most important. Write or sketch down all your ideas about the site. Get as much down as you can as you can always refer back to them later. Once these are all down start with a wireframe.

It is important to start with a wireframe in a big design process. Here is a quick wireframe sketch below:

This is a very basic one but you get the idea.
