How to wireframe a website | CharliMarieTV

Web Design

In today’s tech-savvy world, more and more businesses and organizations are realizing that DIY websites or—gasp—no website at all just won’t cut it. And now that mobile Internet usage has officially overtaken desktop usage, the do-it-yourselfers are having a hard time designing websites that are smartphone compatible.

If you’ve got what it takes, Web design can make for a satisfying career. But the road isn’t easy: You’ll need to be able to market your skills effectively to stand out. A network as much as possible. You can start a blog, speak at local events, and learn from others in your field. You’ll also need to have the skills to complete complex projects and the personality to please demanding customers.

Wireframing is the first stage of the web design process, and in this video I show you how I do it and give you some advice! Please remember to subscribe

If you've ever wondered how to wireframe a website, or if you want to know how to design a website and you've never heard of wireframing, this video is dedicated to you! Yes, you. Wireframing is the process of laying out the bones or the structure of a website to think about how the information will be organised on the page before you start thinking about colours and fonts and other visual things. Using the wireframe process I teach you in this video you'll be able to generate lots of ideas for different ways to arrange your website and be able to decide on the best one from there.

I hope you enjoy the video! Please make sure you give it a thumbs up if you do. I'm still learning how to make tutorials MY way (not just screen casts) so any feedback is much appreciated. I ant these videos to feel like we're sitting in a room together and I'm showing you what to do, rather than you just looking at my screen as I do something. Does that make sense?

If there's something design-related you're struggling with that you'd like a tutorial on next, let me know!

    Hi Charlie, I’m a new subscriber from the Silicon Valley. You have helped me as a humble example in design, so thank you for that. You have a lot of videos describing your design process, but broken apart. You think you could do a brief video explaining all your pieces together of the whole design process. That’d be awesome! Thank you!

    WHAT IS THE PROGRAM THAT YOU USE TO WIREFRAMING?

  15. Richard Workman says

    I’m training to become a web design/developer after teaching design for the past 6 years. The “crazy 8” technique is something I used to use with my students to encourage them to explore design concepts and generate a range of ideas. Great stuff.
