Examples

A lot is happening
At times the design process can
seem very complicated, a lot of
things are happening at the same
time. Many people from different
disciplines are all working together
(and often simultaneously) on the
same project.

Everyone has their own role, and to
make a truly good product, the
communication between the
different parties involved has to be
good.

                                                                                                         5
Interaction design?
The task of an interaction designer
will be to primarily focus on the
structure and skeleton of an
interface.

There are many tools that can be
used in this part of the design
process, one of the most important
being wireframes.




                                                  Jesse James Garret | The Elements of User Experience

                                                                                                         6
Wireframes are:


                    A visual representation of an interface; used
                       to communicate the structure, content,
                      information hierarchy, functionality, and
                              behavior of an interface.

                       to communicate the structure, content,
                      information hierarchy, functionality, and
                              behavior of an interface.

Why use wireframes?

Before making the visual design, you
first make decisions about the
structure, content, layout, etc.
Wireframes are a tool to communicate
these ideas.

“Blueprint for design”

Get everyone on the same page

Prototype for usability tests

Easier to change a wireframe, than a
design!

                                                  9
Before the design...

you need wireframes

                                                  10
Structure
How will the pieces of this site be put
together?

Content
What will be displayed on this site?

Information Hierarchy
How is this information organized and
displayed?

Functionality
How will this interface work?

Behavior
How does it interact with the user? How
does it behave?

Types of wireframes

Good for feedback

Lo-fidelity
Block diagrams
Good for testing flows

Types of wireframes

Sketches
Quick / experiment
Good for feedback

Lo-fi / Content only
Block diagrams
Good for testing flows

Hi-fidelity
Detailed wireframes
Including comments
Describe content & behavior
“Blueprint for final design”
Should be understood without
explanation




CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes

                                                  15
Wireframes do not:
represent the visual design

contact graphic elements

convey the brand or identity




CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes

                                                  16
This is a bad wireframe!

Forget visual design

Avoid using color / gradients




Adding unnecessary elements
makes the wireframe less
powerful, remember:

Wireframes focus only on the
content and interaction of the
interface!




CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes

                                                  17
Looks good, right?




CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes

                                                  18
Yes, but:

Don’t use “Lorem ipsum!”


Be realistic as possible, think about
the content that will really be in the
interface.

Many clients don’t know what
“lorem ipsum” is. Try and add
content that will best represent
content that will be placed in the
final interface. Fake text can be
very distracting.

                                                  19
Example 1:

This is an example of a hi-fidelity
wireframe for an NOS.nl concept.

On the left site of the page is the
wireframe. The blue circles are
numbered to refer to the comments on
the right half of the page.

Note: The comments can also be
placed below the wireframe, it is up to
you.

                                                  20
Example 2:

Instead of using dots to refer to the
comments, another option is to use
arrows to link the interface elements to
the comments.




CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes

                                                  21
How to start?

Start big! Start with the largest parts of
the interface, the frame, header, footer,
etc. Then work you way through the
smaller elements of the interface. The
following slides will show a quick
wireframe build-up.

Final tip!
Remember, your wireframe will be
used by lots of different people for
different purposes:

Designers
Developers
Project leaders
Usability testers
Clients

So be as clear as you can!

  • 7. Wireframes are: A visual representation of an interface; used to communicate the structure, content, information hierarchy, functionality, and behavior of an interface. CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 7

  • 9. Why use wireframes? Before making the visual design, you first make decisions about the structure, content, layout, etc. Wireframes are a tool to communicate these ideas. “Blueprint for design” Get everyone on the same page Prototype for usability tests Easier to change a wireframe, than a design!

  • 11. Structure How will the pieces of this site be put together? Content What will be displayed on this site? Information Hierarchy How is this information organized and displayed? Functionality How will this interface work? Behavior How does it interact with the user? How does it behave? CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 11

  • 14. Types of wireframes Sketches Quick / experiment Good for feedback Lo-fidelity Block diagrams Good for testing flows CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 14
  • 15. Types of wireframes Sketches Quick / experiment Good for feedback Lo-fi / Content only Block diagrams Good for testing flows Hi-fidelity Detailed wireframes Including comments Describe content & behavior “Blueprint for final design” Should be understood without explanation CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 15
  • 16. Wireframes do not: represent the visual design contact graphic elements convey the brand or identity CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 16
  • 17. This is a bad wireframe! Forget visual design Avoid using color / gradients Adding unnecessary elements makes the wireframe less powerful, remember: Wireframes focus only on the content and interaction of the interface! CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 17
  • 18. Looks good, right? CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 18
  • 19. Yes, but: Don’t use “Lorem ipsum!” Be realistic as possible, think about the content that will really be in the interface. Many clients don’t know what “lorem ipsum” is. Try and add content that will best represent content that will be placed in the final interface. Fake text can be very distracting. CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 19
  • 20. Example 1: This is an example of a hi-fidelity wireframe for an NOS.nl concept. On the left site of the page is the wireframe. The blue circles are numbered to refer to the comments on the right half of the page. Note: The comments can also be placed below the wireframe, it is up to you. CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 20
  • 21. Example 2: Instead of using dots to refer to the comments, another option is to use arrows to link the interface elements to the comments. CMD Rotterdam | Interaction Design - Wireframes 21
  • 22. How to start? Start big! Start with the largest parts of the interface, the frame, header, footer, etc. Then work you way through the smaller elements of the interface. The following slides will show a quick wireframe build-up. Final tip! Remember, your wireframe will be used by lots of different people for different purposes: Designers Developers Project leaders Usability testers Clients So be as clear as you can!
