A Common Design Taxonomy | UXploration | Scoop.it

There are risks to ignoring design taxonomy. Negative consequences can include improperly used resources, miscommunication of design problems, poor decision-making, and inefficient products. Subjective, poorly defined approaches to design tend to focus on stylistic design efforts while ignoring functional and strategic design, or vice-versa. This typically results in pretty products that don’t work well, or functional products that don’t offer a compelling user experience. Both lack the full value of complete design.

Wireframes

A wireframe is a schematic or other low-fidelity rendering of a computer interface, intended to primarily demonstrate functionality, features, content, and user flow without explicitly specifying the visual design of a product. Wireframes may function as interface specification for products such as computer applications, web and mobile sites, and all products requiring some form of human-computer interaction.
