Wireframing and the Simplistic Feature of its Creation

Human nature is unintentionally attracted to colors, shapes and visuals; however when it comes to wireframing these aesthetic features would inevitably change the raw idea to be created. A wireframe is rather the first strokes of a pen; it should convey the real intention of the creator without the fascinating colors, the impressive shapes of a design or any kind of branding to the product. It should come raw to the team, the stakeholders and take into consideration the reaction of people at that step of the creation of a product. With the camouflage of fonts other than Arial, Times New Roman or Helvetica, and colors other than blue for hypertexts the wireframe is not a wireframe; it has to go beyond the eye appreciation to a convincing level that conveys the precise functionalities, data, and content without the added effect of a design. The difference between a right and a wrong wireframes manifests in the prioritization of the real element at early stages of a product.

FROM UI/UX TO PRODUCT DESIGNING

Five years ago, IT world witnessed the emergence of user interface, UI; however, on another side, a user experience has also seen the light and, quickly, an overlapping between the two concepts has occurred. Today, with the great optimization of UI/UX we are facing the new era of design: product design. To elaborate: the one way going relationship between design and product that consists in a product that needs a design is now, rather, a two ways relationship, it is the designer who conceptualizes, creates, and targets products not the other way around. UI/UX has become more of a market player, it has shifted from a mere managing tool to a self-contained sector; this phenomenon is obviously prevailing in our modern time, especially in the presence of AI, machine learning, geo-fencing and data-mining. The door-to-door concept of product selling, which seem to be a classic procedure, doesn’t actually end at UI/UX, it is outspread in so many fields, app development is one of the prominent fields that proceeds as so nowadays.
