Presentation: Ten Wireframing Decisions

Abstract:
Practice information architecture for any length of time and sooner or later
you'll be asked to create a wireframe. Wireframes—simplified views of web
page designs--come in all shapes and sizes and remain one of the field's
most controversial documents. Equal parts structure and visual design,
wireframes can elegantly illustrate design concepts and yet come fraught
with risk. To anticipate and help mitigate these risks, there are decisions
you should make BEFORE starting the wireframes. During this session,
participants will hear Dan's take on the ten decisions you need to make
prior to creating a set of wireframes. Since no two information architects
agree on the purpose, format, or contents of wireframes, however, this is
sure to lead to a lively discussion.

If you have some examples of wireframes you'd like to share during the
session, please email them to Dan (brownorama at gmail dot com) prior to
February 8th. The best example will get a free Visio 2003 Reference
Mousepad.
