Lesson Task – Creating a Wireframe

Now it’s your turn to create your very own website wireframe.In the last task, you had to come up with a list of 10 questions for a briefing form. I would like you to now fill in this briefing form, take the answers and create a wireframe for the site.This wireframe do not have to be a wireframe for your current Course Assignment (Product Website) it’s purely for you to practice your skills.You can choose if you want it to be a lo-tech or hi-tech architecture.  Regardless of which method you choose, I would like to see as much detail as possible. Also, please write a short paragraph to explain why you chose the lo-tech or hi-tech option.

For simplicity’s sake I will base the answers on the upcoming assignment of creating a sushi menu website.

  • What target group are you expecting on your website?
  • Young and old with a love for sushi. This means that it has to be fairly simple to get an overview of the content.

  • How are you different from the competitors?
  • The page will be simple but aim for a chic appearance. Many sushi restaurants do not even have a website, and a well-designed one at that.

  • What is your deadline for completing the site?
  • 15/10/21, same as the assignment deadline

  • What features should the website include?
  • A header with logo, menu, either drop down or hyperlinks to further down on the page. contact information below. Introduction part, and columns for the different sushi types and prices.

  • What should be the look and feel for the website?
  • Simple but chic style, perhaps with mellow colors.

  • Who will be the contact person for this project/website.
  • Me, of course.

  • What main keywords would you like to use to make it easier for people to find your website via search engines.
  • Sushi, restaurant,

  • What features are NECESSARY?
  • Header, Menu of some sort, columns for the content, information bar below. Shopping cart, buttons for adding elements to the shopping cart.

  • What features are NICE to have?
  • Back to top button, a visual effect that is triggered by scrolling, such as a traditional izakaya curtain that folds back upon scrolling. Feedback text box.

  • What is the main problem we need to solve?
  • How to make the website user-friendly, and make it clear what different categories that can be found on the menu.

    Initial sketches:


    I chose to create a mobile-first oriented wire-frame with a bit of the text added to make it more understandable. The screen size it approximately that of an Iphone 8. I used Balsamiq Wireframes to create a fast and simple wireframe without having to learn a whole new complex program. Besides, it fit the purpose of this Lesson Task.

    Why a Lo-tech wireframe? The budget is presumably rather small for an online sushi menu with limited content, hence the the Lo-tech wireframe. Had it been a more complex page, with more information and a greater budget, Hi-tech wireframes are to be preferred.

    I did not add in a feedback bar, shopping cart or an «about» part as the page is sufficient as-is.



    Menu, contact information, cart- buttons.

    • (What features are NICE to have?)

    Back to top button, loading page. Animation of Logo. Fold down menu.
