Wireframing & Prototyping

Use fast, cost-effective techniques to get your design ideas in front of customers as early as possible in the design process. Repeat fast design-and-test cycles to discover users' needs, to maintain focus on user priorities, and to let users test-drive your innovative ideas.

Benefits

  • Obtain early user data and feedback to inform your web and application design decisions.
  • Discover what really matters to your customers and users before you've invested too much in design or development.
  • Employ customer and user data to prioritize your development timelines, effort and resources.
  • Involve and engage your users—customers, staff, etc—in your design process to improve buy-in, communications and commitment.

What is Wireframing and Prototyping?

  • Wireframes are basic web page or application screen layouts, without detailed graphics or finalized layout. They can be linked to simulate navigatin or appplication behaviour.
  • Producing wireframes forces the design team to address key issues as early as possible.
  • Wireframes also allow you to observe real user behaviour as they interact with your wireframes, and to obtain detailed feedback about your designs, alternatives, and ideas.
  • Prototypes are used later in the process, for more complex interactions, to simulate real behaviour of widgets (e.g. mega-menus), and to illustrate branding, imagery etc.

What is the cost and timeframe?

  • Typically takes 6-12 weeks to iterate through 3 design-and-test cycles - but it depends on your flexibility and the responsiveness of your designers and managers.
  • Costs typically range from $20-50K depending on the complexity of the website or application.

When should I do Wireframing and Prototyping?

  • When you have innovative ideas you'd like to test with users, quickly and cheaply.
  • When you have a complex website or application with tough design decisions that would benefit from user data and feedback.
  • When you need to prioritize your timescales, effort and resources, based on user priorities.

What do I get?

  • For each design-and-test cycle you get a set of wireframes or prototypes of the critical pages, user interaction and navigation components of your website or application.
  • For each design-and-test cycle you get a round of usability testing with representative users, an analysis and (re)design recommendations.
