Planning your webdesign with sketches.
- By drawing, you can do rapid – almost according to train-of-thought speed – development to get your ideas quickly on paper. It works on-the-fly, so you have to spend less billable hours in front of your monitor and have more time to generate ideas. Thus, simply roll up your sleeves and look for solutions!
- When drawing seems to be informal enough, the time has come to start completing the digital wireframes.
How to make sketches?
First, gather all the critical content for the webpage and decide on what you want your webpage to display. This can be done quickly with sticky notes or by writing a document.
Second, look for examples on the internet and decide on how you want your content structured before it will finally be shown. In this, sketch out the navigation, the content blocks, the columns, the related support content blocks, the headers, the footers, and so on.
After developing multiple design sketches, you should try to fuse all of them into one final version. This is done by choosing the best sketch version for each different block which, in turn, will result in the final winning idea.
