This client was relatively clear in communicating their desires from a UX UI strategy, however, the challenges we faced were coming up on bottle-necks when it came to receiving content.

Through this we came up with ideal word counts to not only help the client, but we also benefit from having clearer and more concise messaging as it created a better experience.
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.
