This client was relatively clear in communicating their desires from a requirement & UX UI strategy; challenges we faced were coming up on bottle-necks when it came to receiving content. The stakeholder's were very diverse on this from a UX perspective as users ranged from elderly folks, employees, & potential employees. We really boiled down to what the persona's needed from their stories and through meticulous interaction flow charts we delivered the best UX strategy for the flow on this site.
Sitemap - establishing the exact pages that are to be built for the site; both unique pages as well as any templatized pages. A kind of table of contents outlining what pages relate to which content on a website. A sitemap allows users to see the layout of your pages and the order of their hierarchy.
Wire-framing - grey and white simplistic renderings of *unique pages on the site to ensure all content is laid out well and also accounted for. At the design stage, a wireframe allows designers to locate the make-up of the website, where to put what buttons, what colors to use, how the user will interact with content (UX or UI) and how the interface might work.
Visual Design- Creating a suitable color scheme or incorporating the client’s color scheme into the design. Coding the site’s navigation. Designing buttons and other controls for the site.
