Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a wireframe, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] So we've carefully considered…the purpose of our portfolio, we have corralled…all of our assets, we've looked at various different…graphic designers' websites for inspiration,…we've deconstructed templates to see how…they're put together, and now we're raring to go,…we can't wait to start designing in Muse,…well hold your horses, one more thing we need to do…before we do that and very importantly,…we need to create a wire frame.…Now the wire frame can start out as simple as this,…there's my wire frame, nothing more than a pencil sketch…but as crude as that is, it was very helpful to me.…
This is for you, no one's going to see this.…And then I translated my wire frame into Illustrator…but you could also use Photoshop or InDesign…or whatever you're comfortable with,…just marking out the different regions of the page…and the sizes of those regions.…So this is a very important document which we'll…be referring to throughout the duration of the project…and of course it is going to evolve as the project evolves,…
