Wireframes are basic illustrations of the structure and components of each intranet page. They are usually the first step in the design process, allowing you to visually clarify what is required for your intranet structure. By creating a wireframe you can save time and money by ensuring your layout works for your users.
Wireframes can be as simple or as complicated as you like. They could be a sketch on graph paper or they could be created using drawing software.
Some of the benefits of creating wireframes are:-
- Your end users can assess whether the design works.
- Several different options can be created without any cost other than time.
- Missed areas can be identified
What should you include in your wireframe?
Try to include as much detail as possible, such as:
