The Right Way to Wireframe

Time slot: 
March 8th, 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM
Chicago 10
Design and UX

Get a behind the scenes look at the design process used by four different UX designers, all working to solve the exact same problem with the exact same set of requirements. We'll identify the right way--for you--to wireframe.

This highly energetic session will provide an in-depth behind the scenes look at the process behind the design, including: research, IA/interaction design, wireframing/prototyping and visual design. The presentations will conclude with a time-lapse video of the entire process from start to finish and a comparative view of the similarities in the processes that each designer uses.
