Presentation: Wireframing Smarter

As the sites we build get increasingly complicated, the wireframing phase is increasingly important. Solving high-level usability challenges early in the process is less expensive and faster for you and your clients! In this talk, I'll share the techniques and tools we use at Chapter Three to quickly produce high-quality wireframes and maintain your UX sanity.

We'll also discuss: 

  • How wireframing can be a vacation from design thinking
  • Using wireframes to test the usability of your website
  • Creating wireframes for responsive websites
  • Why paper is the most important tool
  • How you can learn to stop worrying and love Helvetica (again)

This talk will be adapted from my existing blog series, Wireframing With OmniGraffle, but will cover additional tools and resources. You can get a head start right here:
