As part as the blog update I want to do an exercise: share the process, step by step.
I see it not only as a way to get back to a writing routine, but also to assure that I follow the right design methodology, without skipping steps. Something quite common in my past redesigns, I have to say.
I’ll go through the process of conceptual design, setting certain requirements, creating the initial idea, developing wireframes and visual design for, finally, code it.
I want to follow a content first, responsive web design approach. Ideally it would help me to define a responsive UX methodology.
We’re used to design fixed layouts, create variations, annotate them and deliver a beautiful set of A3 or A4 wireframes. Although most of the steps are unaffected, the responsive approach requires more wireframes and a lot more testing, if we want to deliver the best experience.
Hopefully, I’ll have something to write every 1 or 2 weeks. That means I don’t plan to launch the new website until 2012 but, let’s be honest, I don’t spend that much time working on it at home. A men has to enjoy his life too.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated, of course. Stay tuned, I hope you’ll find it interesting.
