Join Laurie Burruss for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a project, part of Web Site Planning and Wireframing: Hands-On Training.
So let's start our first project. I call this project Anatomy of a Homepage.…But at the same time we will also create a wireframe. We are going to analyze a…homepage of a web site of your choice. In my case, this will be the Pasadena…City College, Digital Media Center.…A wireframe is a basic visual guide that is used in web design to suggest the…layout a fundamental elements in the interface. Upon completion of this project…you will be able to deconstruct a homepage, which means you will be able to…identify the main structural elements as well as its features and at the same…time you will create a layer called the wireframe that shows the main sections…and the main features.
