Wireframing our pages

In this update we'll give a quick overview of wireframes and how we're using them.

Wireframing our pages

What is a wireframe?

You'll see us referring to wireframes a lot on this project, and one of the most common things people say is "what exactly is a wireframe?". A wireframe is a drawing of a single web page, which shows the layout of that page without any specific content on it.

Its purpose is just to give the team an idea on:

  • how a page might be structured
  • what type of content it will have (videos, carousel, lists, images etc)
  • if there are any special features a page needs, they may be noted down.

They don't concern themselves with colours, fonts, navigation items or specific content. That level of detail isn’t needed yet.

There’s loads of information online about wireframes so it may be worth watching this Youtube video which gives a great summary of wireframes:
