How-to to run a software consulting business


by shabda on October 16, 2011

If you have a project you are going to be working on, but you dont have the wireframes, creating a wireframe should be one of your first action items.

A wireframe can be a high fidelity(Design close to final) or a low fidelity wireframe (Uses a simple design). I recommend creating a low fidelity wireframe. There are a number of tools for this but I recommend.

  1. Balsamiq
  2. GoMockingBird

Both allow you to create wireframes using drag and drop. GomockingBird has a monthly cost and Balsamiq is a one time buy. GomockingBird has collaboration features.

Tips for wireframing

  • Focus on the big picture, dont get bogged down by details
  • Link related pages
  • Keep a consistent structure
