Information Architecture and Wireframe Development
Intuitive navigation is one of the secrets to an easy-to-use website. At Sandstorm Design, we establish data and information architecture based on web usability standards to intuitively organize and connect your audience to information they need. In order to quickly convey the organization of information, we develop wireframes to visually demonstrate information priorities, basic layout, and navigational structure.
What's a wireframe? Wireframes are similar to a blueprint while building a house. A wireframe is generally black and white, contains very little graphic design, and identifies the general placement of web site elements including your main nav, news section, image area, content area, shopping cart, etc. This forces you to consider the site's functionality, instead of focusing on a graphical treatment.
Information architecture and wireframe development is completed before any creative web design or web development has begun, reducing your costs and saving time. Making changes to the wireframe is much faster than making creative and development changes.
