Wireframes

Example

At the beginning of my design process I created wireframes for testing purposes.

Guiding Questions

  • Why was it useful to do this?
  • What kind of wireframes did you make?
  • Low fidelity or high fidelity?
  • What tool did you use for this?
  • Did you use them for testing?
  • How many iterations did you have?

Summary

  • Managing the apps was a key component to how this was going to work. SInce this was going to be sold as a self service enterprise platform, the idea that you could add and manage your own apps became a key functionality that we were basically told we need to build to make it a marketable product
  • How were we going to handle multiples of the same app - weather it be for different platforms or the need for different versions to be available to the end user
  • We addressed this in the component design to be able to handle multiples of any app
