3 Ridiculously Simple Weird Old Tricks for Making Better Wireframes
In this short talk, a veteran shares his tips on how to make good wireframes with techniques that transcend the tools. Regardless of whether you are using Axure or a whiteboard, there are important best practices to follow when it comes to the process of communicating your design ideas as a wireframe. Along the way he’ll also talk about why he votes “no” on the question of “are wireframes dead?” which has been posed in many articles and conferences over the years.
