I've been digging Wireframes a great new blog showcasing the work of those of us in the UX trenches and highlighting the new and the tried and true of wireframing. Today Mr. Linowski posted about using templates that looks less formal and more like a sketch. I've found this type of wire to be super effective in putting to bed the whole "is this what it's going to look like?" argument. Clients and research subjects alike seem to have no problem understanding the concept of a wireframe when I use it. It's like magic. Here are a few I did recently. These are three different ideas a comparison tool. I've been doing user interviews and then getting their opinion on these at the end. It's going pretty well so far. I'll report back when the research and design is done.
