Wireframing back

We use the term “wireframing” to refer to all the structural design phase of user interface development. We document the planned structure of an interface, navigation paths, relationships between pages and page content allocation in wireframes.

Throughout the project we use wireframes to:

  • ensure design consistency and focus on ease of use
  • communicate with clients and stakeholders (such as content creators, engineers, and developers) about the functionality of the site
  • facilitate discussion and additional idea generation among the team
  • communicate functionality plans to the developer team
We intentionally separate wireframing from graphical look and feel design. Interface screens are stripped of look and feel elements in order to focus on the quality of functionality design. However, graphic design services are also available at Idea Code for creating emotionally appealing look and feel of the interface.
