What is a wireframe in the website development process?

Wireframes are a critical step in the website development process. 

They are an outline of the website’s content, features and functionality, used to plan the user experience and design of the website.

When should we develop a wireframe?
Wireframes are typically created before the design process begins. They inform all members of the team about the “logic” of the website.

As a visual representation, they are used to give an idea of the layout – including the placement of content, images and other features. The web development wireframe  serves as a blueprint for the website and helps to ensure the website is optimised for both users and search engines. 

In other words, wireframes are a skeletal framework of a website. Think of it as a low-fidelity representation of the website that can be used for early testing and feedback

Don’t expect a high level of detail. They are created with simple shapes and lines that represent the website’s content, features, and functionality. They may also include placeholder text, images, and colour palettes – but not always. 

Why are wireframes important in website development?

Wireframes help to visualise the flow of the website, and to ensure the user experience is intuitive and engaging. Additionally, they can help to identify potential issues, such as navigation problems, before the website is built

When done expertly, wireframes help designers, developers, and stakeholders communicate their ideas more effectively.

It allows them to stay on the same page when it comes to structure, layout, navigation and other interactive elements of the website. It also helps identify potential problems and points of improvement before the website is actually built.

It is important to remember that wireframes are not a finished product.

They are simply a tool used to help inform the design and website development process. The wireframe should be used to provide a general overview on which the website design is built. It’s a fantastic resource for developers to be able to return to as a “blueprint” and, therefore, understand the priorities of the site when their turn comes and decisions have to be made. 

A Final Word: Website Development For Students
If you are studying web development in Adelaide (or anywhere, really), don’t underestimate the power of wireframes. We’d recommend you consider including one in your portfolio when it comes time to start your web dev career.

While they are usually created using software such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Sketch or Microsoft Visio, it is also possible to use a whiteboard or pen and paper to meet your budget.

What should my web design include for good SEO?

Topic tags: SEO Adelaide | Website Design Adelaide | September 2022.

The best website design is both aesthetic and practical. It has to improve click-through rates and generate high value traffic for your website.
So the best web designers include best practice SEO in their thinking.
Three tips:

  1. Start with a SEO-friendly site structure. Communicate with your web designer why you’ve chose this structure and navigation so they understand ‘the big picture’.
  2. Don’t guess. Apply tracking software to your website. Work out pains points where you lose people and get your website designer to create a solution that keeps people on the site and engaged. That’s good optimisation!
  3. Design so that on-page elements – such as various headings – are designed to promote your main keywords. This is designing with business purpose, rather than “airy fairy” design that might look pretty but fail to deliver results.

How do you give your website the human touch?

Web development is more than “code”, so how does a website development team give your website the human touch?

When it comes to designing a human-touch website, there are no hard rules. It relies on imagination and creativity to make your site stand out from the crowd.

Our talented creatives will bring the human experience to your website. As an example of one way we/you can achieve this, a site that wants to help people learn Spanish would be better off with a video of two people speaking in Spanish, rather than a map of Spain with a caption.  Real people interacting in realistic situations helps to make the website feel more relatable.

From reviews to About Us pages, we recommend that you use elements that users can relate to, such as photos of real people, their names and their experience.

They key here is to get your audience engaged by providing them with visuals that help them understand your brand identity.

A website’s human touch is a combination of several factors. First, the website should be designed to look and feel like an actual person is behind it. It might be a simple design that reads “Hello!”, to make your site inviting and welcoming. 

When visitors can associate with a website, they’ll feel more comfortable engaging – and that leads to conversions opinions.

Another important aspect of a human-touch website is its content. If visitors can tell that you’re passionate about what you’re writing about, they’ll be more likely to continue reading. If it reads like a machine wrote it, they won’t. 

Personality is the way you present yourself online. If your website looks like all of the other sites on the Internet, it probably won’t stand out from the crowd. There are a few ways to add personality to your site. One way is to use graphics and images that reflect your brand’s personality.

Another way is to use a combination of text and graphics that convey your brand’s personality in a unique way. This isn’t just about making things pretty – it’s about making sure they match the tone of your site as a whole.

You can also add personality by using language that reflects your brand’s personality. A good headline, tagline, and intro paragraph can really help give your site some personality.

So keep the personal touch. Use technology but remember what it means to be a user – to be  “human” – and stay true to your values.
